Controllab, the largest quality control provider in Brazil and Latin America, will participate in the ALAPAC/ML Congress

Between March 28 and 31, 2021, the Latin American Association of Clinical Pathology Laboratory Medicine (ALAPAC/ML) will hold its XXV Congress, in virtual format. The initiative will also bring together the 3rd SMLC Chile Congress and the 7th SMLC Conference.

The congress gathers speakers from different countries in Latin America and other continents, courses and a Benchmarking and Laboratory Indicators Workshop.

In this edition, Controllab specialists will share experience with the participants. Professionals Luiza Bottino and Rafael Lopes will participate, respectively, on March 28 and 29.

Luiza Bottino, Service Management Supervisor, has two participations in the Benchmarking and Laboratory Indicators Workshop. First, it will explain to workshop participants about the functioning of the Benchmarking and Laboratory Indicators Program (PBIL), developed in association with SBPC/ML – Brazilian Society of Clinical Pathology/Laboratory Medicine, a partner of Controllab since 1977. Throughout the Workshop , Luiza will speak again to show practical examples of PBIL compared to IFCC and other references. These examples point to possibilities for improvements in the laboratories, ensuring quality, credibility and patient safety.

Rafael Lopes, Service Manager, will compose the team of specialists who will discuss the analytical quality of the laboratories. With the theme “Analytical Quality Management”, he will address the PDCA, an interactive four-step management method, used for the control and continuous improvement of processes: Plan, Develop, Check and Act.

The Congress, in virtual format, will be a unique opportunity for professionals who wish to have the chance of an international exchange.
