International Federation of Clinical Chemistry Forms Partnership With the Labs Are Vital(TM) Initiative
Date:4/4/2008

ve educational campaign.

"Laboratory professionals guide clinicians throughout the process of diagnosis and clinical decision making, and play one of the most profound roles in care giving," Hicks added. "These professionals quietly generate sensitive, precise, and life-saving data everyday. We all depend upon a highly trained cadre of clinical lab professionals to carefully conduct an increasingly more sophisticated and delicate generation of clinical tests."

The vocation of the laboratory professional is to educate clinicians about the best and most accurate tests to perform for hundreds of different medical conditions. In fact, 70 percent of the objective information used in clinical decision-making comes from data collected in the clinical lab.

This year's Labs Are Vital initiative also will address issues specific to each of the regional members of IFCC, including those related to aging population of lab professionals and the workforce shortage.

About International Federation of Clinical Chemistry

The International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine is composed of 76 full member national societies of clinical chemistry representing more than 30,000 clinical chemists, 38 corporate members and five affiliate members. The IFCC strives to enhance the scientific level and quality of diagnostics and therapy for patients throughout the world. Further information can be found at http://www.ifcc.org
