CLSI Documents Expanded to Include Information on Consultative Services
The practice of laboratory medicine and responsibilities of laboratory directors and associated laboratory professionals has evolved. In addition to professional, scientific, consultative, administrative, and educational matters related to laboratory services, clinical advice regarding test methodologies, appropriate clinical use of testing, and assistance with results interpretation is sought. With better understanding of and in response to current needs, CLSI is embracing the expansion of its document scope.
As such, where applicable, when a proposal for new or revised document is submitted, the scope may be expanded to include information on consultative services and/or clinical interpretation strategies to:
- Formulate effective strategies for laboratory directors and personnel to engage with physicians
- Establish diagnostic stewardship as an essential element of collaborative consultation
- Improve communications among health care providers and implementation of laboratory test findings to support effective delivery of patient care
- Support improved diagnosis and treatment through test utilization management and risk assessment
