ISO 15189 Internal Auditor Training
ISO 15189 Internal Auditor Training - Medical Laboratories
This training course is designed to provide delegates with the skills necessary to conduct internal audits against the requirements of ISO 15189.
ISO 15189 is the internationally recognised standard relating to the competence of medical laboratories. It specifies criteria for the development and assessment of management systems and laboratory technical controls that provide confidence in the results obtained. The standard covers the medical laboratory services including examination requests, patient preparation, sample collection, transport and storage, processing, examination of clinical samples, interpretation and advice in addition to consideration of safety and ethics relating to clinical work. Our course will equip delegates with effective auditing techniques and increase their understanding of audit methodologies to assess against ISO 15189 in order to ensure continued compliance, determine improvements, professionally report findings and implement corrective action programmes.
Delegates should have a reasonable working knowledge of ISO 15189 or equivalent (e.g. Clinical Pathology Accreditation requirements) prior to attending this course. Bywater offers an Introduction to ISO 15189 course which covers the standard in detail.
