Patient Safety Committee

The Patient Safety Committee serves to promote member understanding of the laboratory professional’s role in patient safety. The Committee develops and publishes programs, tools, resources and educational materials to improve patient safety, health outcomes and the diagnostic process.

The Committee actively establishes and prioritizes strategic goals and actions to achieve the ASCLS Patient Safety assigned charges.

To meet the needs of the Society and as directed by the ASCLS Board of Directors and/or Leaders, the Committee:

  • serves to assist ASCLS in achieving its mission to ensure and enhance patient safety
  • collaborates with and serves as a patient safety resource to other ASCLS committees
  • works with partner organizations to maximize patient safety efforts on federal legislative and regulatory advocacy
  • works inter-professionally to improve the diagnostic process, treatment, prevention and patient safety

The Committee holds responsibility for maintaining the following online resources:

  • ASCLS Patient Safety Resources: patient safety published programs, products, resources, and tools
  • ASCLS Patient Safety & Healthcare Quality Community page, library documents, resources, blog articles
  • ASCLS Patient Safety Committee Community page, library documents, and resources
  • ASCLS Position Papers directly related to Patient Safety

The Patient Safety Committee composition, appointment terms and leadership are aligned with the Society’s Standard Operating Procedures. The committee has two very active primary workgroups: Education & Research and Products & Promotion. The Committee may form specialty workgroups as need to complete Society and/or Committee approved goals.

The Committee invites all ASCLS members to get engaged in Patient Safety. Any member that would like to become an active volunteer with the Patient Safety Committee and is interested in assisting with the development of patient safety programs and products are asked to contact the committee’s chair or vice-chair.

All ASCLS members are encouraged to join the Patient Safety & Healthcare Quality community. To join go to All Communities and "Sign In" at the top right of the page > look for and click on Patient Safety & Healthcare Quality > click "Join".

Editorial Calendar

 

Issue: January/February 2021

Theme: Advocacy

The importance of advocating for our profession has never been clearer than during this global pandemic, with its particular impact on medical laboratory professionals. This issue will showcase the ways our Labvocates work to improve the environment for laboratory professionals and maximize their efforts on positive patient outcomes. Advocacy topics may include efforts to influence public policy that impact laboratory professionals, including pressing for high standards, state licensure, and stronger rules on certification. Articles may also focus on personal advocacy—how to shape public perceptions of laboratory professionals and their contributions to the healthcare system—and ASCLS programs such as the annual Legislative Symposium, advocacy work in specific constituent societies, and engagement with regulatory agencies.

Article Submission Deadline: December 1, 2020

 

Issue: March/April 2021

Theme: Visibility

SARS-CoV-2 has brought unprecedented visibility to medical laboratories. However, confusion and misunderstanding (even conspiracy theories!) about testing and medical laboratories still plague our profession. Articles for this issue might showcase efforts to represent medical laboratory science to the public; successful interprofessional initiatives in your workplace; tips for promoting the profession through social media; participation at science or career fairs; or personal stories of how you discovered this amazing career.

Issue Published

 

Issue: May/June 2021

Theme: Diversity

"Promoting diversity supports the delivery of quality laboratory service” is one of the core values of ASCLS. Diversity can encompass all those differences that make us unique, such as race, color, ethnicity, language, nationality, sexual orientation, religion, gender, socio-economic status, age, and physical and mental ability. Assuring diversity and representation exists in ASCLS is critical to promoting a more equitable profession that can deliver patient-centered care. While ASCLS must strive to reflect the diversity in the profession, we must also work towards an inclusive profession that aims to fully represent the society it serves. This issue of ASCLS Today will reflect on the importance—and sometimes confusing nature—of diversity, inclusivity, equity, and justice. What does it mean to be diverse, inclusive, and equitable? How do these concepts assure a just culture in ASCLS? How can we set and achieve goals of promoting diversity?

Article Submission Deadline: April 1, 2021

 

Issue: July/August 2021

Theme: Patient Safety

This issue of ASCLS Today will reflect on the importance of patient safety. Medical laboratory science professionals are responsible for developing a culture of safety as defined by the National Academy of Science. How do laboratory professionals prevent errors to improve patient safety? What technological advances have been implemented to ensure safety in all phases of laboratory testing including pre-analytical, analytical, and post-analytical? What has been done to develop a laboratory culture that focuses on patient safety?
