The LMBP A-6 Cycle: Review and Evaluation Methods for Quality Improvement
Effectively identifying and recommending laboratory medicine best practices for quality improvement projects demands an evidenced-based, transparent review process. This course, The LMBP A-6 Cycle: Review and Evaluation Methods for Quality Improvement, introduces the Laboratory Medicine Best Practice (LMBP) A-6 method for conducting systematic evidence reviews.
This basic level course is intended for those conducting and/or overseeing systematic reviews for research practices including laboratory directors, supervisors and technologists, quality managers, pathologists, research and industry scientists, students, and Systematic Review Coordinators. Laboratories that routinely conduct Quality Improvement (QI) projects, outside of systematic reviews, can also benefit from this course.
After completion of this LMBP online course, participants will be able to:
- Describe three aspects of the evidence-based approach for improving the quality of laboratory medicine decision making.
- Describe the differences in systematic reviews and traditional reviews.
- List the basis for the LMBP initiative and its healthcare quality aims.
- Name the LMBP Cycle A-6 steps, which contributes quality evidence for improvement practices
