Laboratory and Diagnostic Testing in Ambulatory Care: A Guide for Health Care Professionals.pdf
Laboratory Testing for Ambulatory Settings is designed to provide students with a complete understanding of the most common procedures and techniques of all the new CLIA waived, point-of-care tests, and some moderately complex tests as they apply to the ambulatory care setting. Each chapter presents a consistent 'triad' organization by first focusing on the fundamental concepts, followed by the application of these concepts to the CLIA waived procedures, and then concluding with an application of advanced concepts to stimulate thinking. Procedure boxes are integrated throughout with step-by-step instructions and reinforced with numerous full color photos or illustrations. Throughout the text, there is also a strong emphasis placed on safety and government compliance.
