UK NEQAS Compendium of Quality
The publication of the UK NEQAS Compendium of Quality illustrates the core activities of UK NEQAS, particularly in providing performance data for tests across the whole of pathology to diagnostic laboratories and industry, and for scrutiny of quality by UKAS, CQC, MHRA, provider governance systems and commissioners of services.
This Compendium ably demonstrates that the activities of UK NEQAS are much broader than the technical accuracy and precision of results. It provides electronic learning facilities, meetings and websites to educate, train and develop the skills of the workforce in quality management and quality improvement methodology. It is at the forefront of the development of digital imaging techniques to provide educational packages for personal performance and development. Advances in new technology and processes (genomics, molecular pathology, POCT, digitisation, informatics) require a strengthened quality assurance framework and the Compendium provides examples of how new approaches to EQA are being developed.
