About this title:

The global medical process is a chain of different medical multidisciplinary procedures. The success in global patient safety will depend on the safety of the consecutive medical processes that intervene in this complex system. Laboratory data is an essential part of healthcare - indeed, it is used in 70% of clinical decisions.

Inappropriate laboratory test over-requesting is extremely frequent. The prevalence of under-requesting has been less studied. The consequences of under-requesting are clear: we are missing a diagnosis. Inappropriate over-requesting can result not only in a problem of cost, but also in a problem regarding patient safety.

In all, there is a consensus that the inadequacy of test requesting must be corrected through strategies and monitored over time through indicators to assure the optimal laboratory contribution to clinical decision-making and patient safety.

This unique book on appropriate laboratory test-requesting as part of clinical laboratory contribution to patient safety offers strategies to correct inappropriateness in laboratory test requesting.

Readership: Clinicians, pathologists and those involved in patient management.

Authors: Maria Salinas, Maite Lopez-Garrigos, Enrique Rodriguez-Borja, Álvaro Blasco, and Arturo Carratalá
