NRL Training: Roche Diagnostics Workshop for NRL Quality Assurance Participants
Roche Diagnostics Vietnam hosts an annual Infectious Diseases Workshop for all Vietnamese laboratories nationwide who participate in NRL’s External Quality Assessment Schemes (EQAS), as a continuous education program under long term collaboration between Roche Diagnostics Vietnam and NRL. The objective of the 2019 Workshop was for participants to report the results of their 2018 EQAS participation and improve their understanding of EQAS and Quality Control (QC) programs as a means to provide accurate patient testing, and the ability to undertake possible corrective actions if required.
The Infectious Diseases Workshop was held on 19 July 2019 in Ho Chi Minh City and was facilitated by NRL staff member Sandy Walker. There were approximately 40 participants nationwide who attended the Workshop which was deemed very valuable in ensuring that laboratories in Vietnam support high quality infectious diseases testing.
