Implementing a sound quality management system and conducting root cause analyses when problems occur will not only solve problems, but will also help shape protocols that prevent future issues. The webinar, presented as part of a series within the Stago EdVantage Virtual University in honor of the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science’s (ASCLS) Medical Laboratory Professionals Week (MLPW), will examine common issues impacting quality in the coagulation laboratory and impact on patient outcomes. Real-world case studies focused on troubleshooting and enhancement of general hemostasis laboratory practices will be provided.

Donna D. Castellone, QA Manager for Specialty Testing and Supervisor in the department of Special Coagulation and Special Hematology at New York Presbyterian Hospital, will be the speaker.

Donna has written several chapters in laboratory medicine books, many publications, and presented dozens of coagulation lectures to diverse audiences at all levels of expertise. She is adjunct professor at York College and Rutgers University. Donna presently serves on the Executive Committee of the North American Specialized Coagulation Laboratory Association (NASCOLA) as a Secretary, Publication Committee and Pre-Curriculum Committee for the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP), and the Expert Committee for Hematology for the Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI).
