Document control remains a frequently cited deficiency in many laboratory inspections. The first half of this webinar will illustrate how a hospital-based transfusion medicine laboratory uses CLSI document GP02-A5—Laboratory Documents: Development and Control; Approved Guideline—Fifth Edition to address this issue. The second half of this webinar will showcase the document’s recently published replacement: CLSI document QMS02-A6—Quality Management System: Development and Management of Laboratory Documents; Approved Guideline—Sixth Edition. Four key features that help laboratories meet published regulations, accreditation requirements, and international standards for documents and document management will be featured. Suggestions on how to meet these requirements will also be discussed.
Learner Level: Intermediate
At the conclusion of this program, the participant will be able to:
- Discuss issues to consider for document control, including standardization, review and approval, archiving, and storage.
- Compare and contrast manual vs electronic document control systems.
- Describe the changes included in the new QMS02-A6 and how these changes can help laboratories meet regulatory and accreditation requirements.
