The central committee appointed by the College will annually issue a set of EQA slides to individual pathologists. These will be accompanied by relevant details regarding the cases. The pathologist will be given a reasonable period of time to review these cases, and a date by which the reports on these cases should be submitted to the central committee. The committee will evaluate the results and issue a report to the pathologist as to their performance on the EQA scheme as compared with percentages of other pathologists at national level.

The central committee will annually send paraffin blocks of selected cases to each laboratory. These will be accompanied by instructions on stains to be performed, and a date will be given by which the laboratory should submit stained slides (along with the remaining blocks) to the central committee. The laboratory will be required to cut sections, perform haematoxylin and eosin stains as well as any special stains requested and mount and label slides. The committee will assess the quality of cutting, staining and mounting of these slides and issue a report to the laboratories regarding their performance. Depending on the results, the committee will issue a certificate to individual technicians taking part in this scheme.

Maintenance of appropriate registers is of utmost importance in every laboratory. This will not only keep a record of the specimens received, but will also help the pathologist and laboratory staff to assess turnaround times of the laboratory and detect and rectify unnecessary delays.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
