Blood cell morphology newsletter and training tool
HORIBA UK, Medical offers a blood cell morphology-focused newsletter that draws on HORIBA Medical’s haematology expertise. The Quality Slide Program (QSP) newsletter includes morphology case studies, top morphology tips, slide reviews and quizzes.
The QSP newsletter can be used as a standalone educational tool or as part of HORIBA’s overall Quality Slide Program (QSP) 2.0 online morphology training package. This offers six digital cell morphology slides of real-life cases for download and examination to enable continuous training and competency assessment every month.
Just as the QSP monthly newsletter is a valuable educational tool for any haematologist involved in cell morphology, HORIBA’s QSP 2.0 online learning packages support blood cell identification evaluation in all laboratories, whatever their haematology platform. This helps to build and reinforce the blood film morphology knowledge base within the haematology laboratory.
The Quality Slide Program (QSP) 2.0 is a unique and affordable digital tool for skill evaluation and training in morphology, which covers a huge diversity of pathologies seen globally. Using high-definition digital cell morphology imaging, the QSP 2.0 software enables laboratory staff to examine and report on digital blood films that have been pre-selected and reviewed by experts.
In addition to supporting continuous learning and building staff confidence, this also helps to standardise an area of the laboratory that can be subjective. Furthermore, it enables laboratory management to assess staff ability to classify correctly individual white blood cell (WBC) populations and other identifiable elements in accordance with the quality control requirements of ISO15189. Monthly issues are available to download and subscribe to from HORIBA Medical’s website.
