Unleashing the Mid Level Provider in Pathology - A Case Based Demonstration
Sean McNair, MPH, CT(ASCP)
The CAAHEP Standards and Guidelines for the Accreditation in Cytotechnology underwent a major revision in 2014 . These standards are intended to serve as minimum standards used to accredit programs that train students in Cytotechnology, and also highlight the skill sets which past and future Cytotechnologists are being introduced to during training to prepare for the evolution of the "Mid-Level Provider" in anatomic pathology. This webinar will provide a short synopsis of the CAAHEP standards and guidelines utilizing a case-based approach to demonstrate how these skills can optimize the workflow of the anatomic pathology laboratory.
This educational activity is designed for pathologists, cytopathologists, cytotechnologists, students and other members of the cytopathology community.
- Updating the Cytopathology community about the updated CAAHEP standards and guidelines (2014)
- Informing the Cytopathology community of methods to implement the advanced skills of the Cytopathologists utilizing a case-based approach
- Introducing new ideas for future methods for Cytotechnologists to meet the increased workflow demands of the Cytopathology lab
