                         CME/CE Information

                         Accreditation
                         The College of American Pathologists (CAP) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for
                         Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

                         CME Category 1
                         The College of American Pathologists designates these educational activities for a maximum of the
                         stated number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate
                         with the extent of their participation in the activity.

                         CE (Continuing Education for nonphysicians)
                         The College of American Pathologists designates these educational activities for a maximum of
                         the stated number of credits/hours of continuing education. Participants should claim only those
                         credits/hours they spent in the activity. The American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) Board
                         of Registry Certification Maintenance Program deems these activities acceptable to meet the
                         continuing education requirements. The states of California and Florida also approve these activities
                         for continuing education credit.

                         Cytotechnologists may apply the credits from the PAPCE1/PAPJE1/PAPKE1/PAPME1, PAP PT, and
                         NGC programs toward the required educational activities for the American Society for
                         Cytopathology (ASC) Continuing Education Credit Program (CECC) and the International Academy
                         of Cytology (IAC).

Education Programs
Many of our education programs include CME/CE credit. These case-based programs may offer glass slides, CD-ROMs,
and/or online whole slide images that simulate the use of a microscope allowing you to scan and use multiple magnifications
to view the image. Participants review the slides or images and the clinical background or reference information, and then
they select the appropriate diagnosis and answer the learning assessment questions. Some programs may include the target
responses with the original mailing. For more information, see the table on the following page.
Our online whole slide imaging education programs work with the Windows operating system and require Internet access.
To best view CAP education courses, use the following browsers:
     • Internet Explorer 6.x and higher – Windows XP

    Optimal turnaround time (TAT) for testing is a critical element of laboratory service for the Emergency Department (ED). TAT for
    laboratory testing may impact patient throughput in the ED, which, in turn, can then impact hospital bed capacity management.
    Laboratory TAT for key tests impacts workflow for ED physicians and staff as well as satisfaction of the ED physicians with
    laboratory services. As a result of TAT issues, the laboratory might expend additional resources for point-of-care (POC) testing
    or satellite laboratories in the ED.

    Objective
     Measure order-to-report TAT for laboratory tests frequently requested from the ED and measure the satisfaction of ED
     physicians with the TAT provided.

    Data Collection
     For a four-week period, participants will prospectively review specimens submitted to the laboratory for creatinine and CBC
     testing and microscopic urinalysis. For each test type, participants will identify three specimens per day, during the day shift,
     and record the times for test order, specimen collection, laboratory receipt, and result reports. For specimens not collected by
     the laboratory and for which the order and collection times cannot be determined electronically, participants may enlist the aid
     of ED personnel. POC testing is excluded from this study.
     Participants will also send a questionnaire to ED physicians to determine the level of satisfaction with laboratory services.
     Physicians may access and return the questionnaire to the laboratory in an electronic format.

    Performance Indicators
     • Primary:
        o Order-to-report TATs for creatinine, CBC, and microscopic urinalysis

     • Secondary:
        o Satisfaction of ED physicians with clinical laboratory services

 Blood products are a precious medical therapeutic resource with potential for significant adverse outcome, yet their use does not
 always fall within accepted guidelines. Plasma transfusion is indicated for treatment of coagulopathies due to insufficient clotting
 factors and replacement of single clotting factors for which specific concentrates are not available. Hospital Transfusion Services
 and Transfusion/Blood Utilization Committees must track a variety of quality indicators in order to meet accreditation guidelines.
 Appropriateness of plasma transfusion is a clinically relevant indicator, with impact on patient safety as well as inventory and
 cost.

Objective
 Assess the conformance of plasma transfusion practice to institutional guidelines and assess the post-transfusion coagulation
 testing documentation and extent of coagulation correction achieved.

Data Collection
 Participants will retrospectively review the records from 40 patients receiving plasma transfusion. For each patient’s initial
 plasma transfusion episode during his or her admission, the clinical indication and recent pretransfusion coagulation
 laboratory values will be recorded and evaluated for conformance with the facility’s own guidelines. The study will require the
 examination of each patient’s post-transfusion record for documentation of post-transfusion coagulation testing and the degree
 of coagulation correction achieved.

Performance Indicators
  • Primary:
     o Rate of plasma transfusions that met institutional guidelines
     o Rate of pre- and post-transfusion coagulation testing

  • Secondary:
     o Rate of plasma units prepared but not transfused
     o Rate of reported transfusion reactions

    Amended surgical pathology reports convey new information or changes to diagnosis after a final report has been issued.
    Report errors may cover a spectrum from the relatively innocuous (eg, the wrong clinician’s name is on the report or the patient’s
    age is incorrect) to serious errors that drastically affect patient management (eg, a malignant lesion mistaken for benign). Report
    errors are often detected through passive means, such as clinician discovery, patient discovery, case review for clinical
    conferences, or through mandatory case review at a tertiary treatment center. Recent surveillance methods target more active
    means of detecting errors, such as double review of a selected population of cases (eg, all new malignancies), double review of
    a set percentage of cases, and review of written reports by ancillary personnel.

    Objective
     Examine the rate of report defects and the reasons for those defects, determine the means by which report defects are
     discovered, and determine the effect of report defects on patient care.

    Data Collection
     Participants will conduct two data collections. The first will prospectively identify all forms of amended reports over a period of
     12 weeks, or until 50 amended reports have been reviewed, whichever comes first. For each case, participants will determine
     the type of error present and how the error was discovered. The second data collection will retrospectively identify amended
     reports that specifically involve diagnostic changes over a period of 12 months or to a maximum of 10 amended reports,
     whichever comes first. For each case, participants will determine how the error was discovered and the degree of diagnostic
     change.

 Specimen rejection may have significant consequences for patients and their clinical management. Patients whose specimens are
 rejected are frequently subjected to repeat specimen collection, resulting in inconvenience, the discomfort of repeat phlebotomy
 or other collection procedures, and/or the potential need for blood transfusion due to excessive iatrogenic blood loss. Specimen
 rejection and the need for specimen correction or recollection also ultimately lead to a delay in specimen analysis and the
 availability of test results.

Objective
 Quantify the effect of laboratory specimen rejection on the delay in test result availability and determine the effect on test result
 availability by: a) the reason for specimen rejection, b) the detection method for mislabeled specimens, and c) the laboratory’s
 policy regarding resolution of improperly labeled specimens.
 Data Collection
  Determine the number of blood and urine specimens received by the chemistry and hematology laboratory sections to identify
  80 rejected specimens or until you have reviewed specimens for six weeks, whichever comes first. For each rejected specimen,
  record the following times: laboratory receipt, time specimen deemed unacceptable, request time of specimen recollection, and
  time of recollected specimen receipt. Rejected specimens will be categorized as improperly labeled or inappropriate or
  inadequate specimen.
  This study excludes blood and urine specimens submitted for highly specialized testing, including flow cytometric, molecular
  DNA or RNA, and/or cytogenetic analysis, as well as specimens for point-of-care testing.

Performance Indicators
  • Primary:
     o Median specimen processing delay for all rejected chemistry and hematology blood specimens, regardless of the
       reason for rejection

  • Secondary:
     o Percentage of rejected chemistry and hematology blood specimens
     o Percentage of corrected or redrawn chemistry and hematology blood specimens received

Performance Breakdown
  • Breakdown of rejection reason for the two groups:
    o Improperly labeled specimen
    o Inappropriate or inadequate specimen

                                  Patient Identification Accuracy QT1
 In order to report accurate laboratory results and meet The Joint Commission National Patient Safety Goal #1: “Improve the
 accuracy of patient identification,” institutions must properly identify patients. Since most laboratories perform testing away from
 the patient, patient identification, labeling of specimens, and coordination with test requisitions must be performed accurately
 and completely. By continuously monitoring for wristband errors, participants can promptly identify and correct problems that
 may interfere with patient care services.

Objective
Assess the incidence of wristband errors within individual institutions, compare performance between participating institutions,
and identify improvement opportunities.

Data Collection
On six predetermined days per month, participants will monitor patient wristband identification for all phlebotomies performed
at their institution. Phlebotomists will tally the total number of wristbands checked, the number of errors found, and the types of
wristband error. This monitor includes all routinely wristbanded patients. (Include emergency department patients only if the
emergency department routinely applies wristbands to these patients.)

                                    Blood Culture Contamination QT2
 Despite advances in blood culture practices and technology, false-positive blood culture results due to contaminants continue to
 be a critical problem. Blood culture contamination rate, the primary indicator of preanalytic performance in microbiology is
 associated with increased length of hospital stay, additional expense, and the administration of unnecessary antibiotics. The
 CAP and other accrediting organizations require you to monitor and evaluate key indicators of quality for improvement
 opportunities. Use this monitor to help you meet this requirement.

Objective
Determine the rate of blood culture contamination using standardized criteria for classifying contaminants.

Data Collection
On a monthly basis, participants will tabulate the total number of blood cultures processed and the total number of
contaminated blood cultures. Blood cultures from neonatal patients are tabulated separately. For the purposes of this study, par-
ticipants will consider a blood culture to be contaminated if they find one or more of the following organisms in only one of a
series of blood culture specimens: Coagulase-negative Staphylococcus; Micrococcus; Alpha-hemolytic (viridans) Streptococci;
Propionibacterium acnes; Corynebacterium sp. (diptheroids); or Bacillus sp. Participants have the option to monitor institution-
specific subgroups.

Performance Indicators
 • Neonatal Contamination Rate (%)
 • Other Contamination Rate (%)
 • Overall Contamination Rate (%)

                                 Laboratory Specimen Acceptability QT3
    A substantial amount of rework, diagnostic and therapeutic delay, and patient inconvenience can result from specimen rejection.
    Patient redraws may result from unlabeled, mislabeled, and incompletely labeled specimens; clotted and/or hemolyzed
    specimens; or insufficient specimen quantity. By continuously monitoring specimen acceptability, collection, and transport,
    laboratories can promptly identify and correct problems. Participation in this monitor can help satisfy the CAP’s Checklist
    question GEN.20348, “Are preanalytic processes monitored?”

    Objective
    Identify and characterize unacceptable blood specimens that are submitted to the chemistry and hematology sections of
    the clinical laboratory for testing.

    Data Collection
    This monitor includes all blood specimens submitted for testing to the chemistry and hematology departments of the clinical
    laboratory. On a weekly basis, participants will record the total number of specimens received, the number of rejected
    specimens, and the primary reason each specimen was rejected.

                                     In-Date Blood Product Wastage QT4
    Blood for transfusion is a precious resource. At a minimum, wastage of blood that is not out-of-date represents a financial loss to
    the health care system. More ominously, systemic wastage of blood may reflect an environment of care that is out of control and
    could pose risks to patient safety.

    Objective
    Compare the rates of blood product wastage (ie, units discarded in-date) in participating hospitals and track rates of
    improvement over time.

    Data Collection
    On a monthly basis, participants will use blood bank records to obtain information on the total number of units transfused for
    each type of blood component. Participants will track the number and type of blood units that are wasted in-date and the
    circumstances of wastage. Include the following types of blood components: whole blood (allogeneic); red blood cells
    (allogeneic); frozen plasma; platelet concentrates; single donor platelets; and cryoprecipitate.

                  Satisfaction with Outpatient Specimen Collection QT7
 Specimen collection is one of the few areas of laboratory medicine that involves direct outpatient contact. As a result, patient
 satisfaction with this service is a vital indicator of quality laboratory performance. Accrediting agencies such as The Joint
 Commission and CAP (GEN.20368) require measurement of patient satisfaction with laboratory services. Use this monitor to
 help you meet this requirement.

Objective
Assess patient satisfaction with outpatient phlebotomy services by measuring patients’ assessment of waiting time, discomfort
level, courteous treatment, and overall satisfaction.

Data Collection
On a monthly basis, participants will distribute copies of a questionnaire to a minimum of 25 outpatients (maximum of 99
outpatients), using predetermined data collection criteria. This monitor includes any outpatient undergoing venipuncture. This
monitor excludes patients seen in the emergency department, ambulatory surgery area, urgent care facility, chest pain center,
23-hour short-stay facility, employee health department, outpatient health screening fair/promotion, dialysis center, nursing
home, or extended care facility.

Performance Indicators
 • Overall Patient Satisfaction Score
 • Patients “More Than Satisfied” (%)




                                Stat Test Turnaround Time Outliers QT8
 The stat test turnaround time (TAT) outlier rate, expressed as a percentage of tests missing target reporting times, is a measure
 of outcomes that evaluates how well the laboratory meets patient and clinician needs. This monitor helps meet CAP Checklist
 question GEN.20316, “Does the QM program include monitoring key indicators of quality?”

Objective
Monitor the frequency with which stat test TAT intervals exceed institutional stat test TAT expectations.

Data Collection
Before beginning data collection, participants will establish a specimen receipt-to-report deadline for emergency department
(ED) stat potassium tests. On six predetermined days per month, participants will monitor the TAT of up to 10 randomly
selected ED stat potassium tests on each of three eight-hour shifts (up to 180 tests per month) and track the number of ED stat
potassium determinations reported later than the established reporting deadline. This monitor includes stat potassium tests
ordered as part of a panel and excludes stat potassium levels that are requested on body fluids other than blood, as part of
timed or protocol studies, or after the specimen arrives in the laboratory.

                                          Critical Values Reporting QT10
    Laboratories commonly refer to critical values as results requiring immediate notification to the physician or caregiver for
    necessary patient evaluation or treatment. Recent regulations from agencies and accreditors such as CMS, The Joint
    Commission, and the CAP (GEN.20316, 20365, 41320) mandate that laboratories develop and implement an alert system
    for critical values. Use this monitor to document compliance with your laboratory’s alert plan.

    Objective
    Evaluate the documentation of successful critical values reporting of general chemistry, hematology, and coagulation analytes for
    both inpatients and outpatients according to the laboratory’s policy.

    Data Collection
    On a monthly basis, participants will evaluate 120 inpatient and 120 outpatient critical values. Data collection will include
    general chemistry, hematology, and coagulation analytes on the critical values list. Retrospectively, participants will record the
    total number of critical values monitored and the number with documentation of successful notification. This monitor will
    exclude critical values for microbiology, cardiac markers, drugs of abuse, therapeutic drug levels, urinalysis, blood gases,
    point-of-care tests, tests performed at reference laboratories, and critical values on discharged patients.

    Performance Indicators
     • Total Critical Values Reporting Rate (%)
     • Inpatient Critical Values Reporting Rate (%)
     • Outpatient Critical Values Reporting Rate (%)




                                       Turnaround Time of Troponin QT15
    The swiftness with which physicians establish diagnoses of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in patients presenting to the
    emergency department (ED) with chest pain may determine the type and predict the outcomes of therapy those patients will
    receive. Included in the total time consumed in establishing diagnoses of AMI are the component intervals required to measure
    biochemical markers of myocardial injury. One of the most critical biochemical markers is troponin. Help meet CAP Checklist
    question GEN.20316 with this monitor.

    Objective
    Determine the median order-to-report turnaround time (TAT) of troponin (I or T) and the percent of troponin results reported by
    each institution’s established deadline.

    Data Collection
    Participants will record TATs (in minutes) for three randomly selected troponin specimens obtained from patients seen in EDs on
    each of three traditional shifts (total of nine measurements) on six pre-determined days per month. They will measure TATs from
    the time the tests are ordered to the time that results are made available to ED personnel.

    Performance Indicators
     • Median Troponin Order-to-Report TAT (minutes)
     • Troponin TAT Compliance Rate (%)

                                              Corrected Results QT16
 The CAP developed this Q-TRACKS monitor in recognition of the importance of timely detection and correction of erroneous
 laboratory results. Accuracy in laboratory results is critical to the effectiveness of a physician’s plan of care for a patient. An
 erroneous result can delay or alter patient treatment; therefore, detection of erroneous results should be a priority in every
 laboratory and should be monitored as a key quality indicator. Help measure your compliance with CLIA 493.1299,
 Postanalytic Systems Quality Assessment, with this monitor.

Objective
Monitor the number of corrected test results within individual institutions and compare performance with that of all institutions
and those institutions similar to yours.

Data Collection
On a monthly basis, participants will monitor the number of corrected test results and the total number of billable tests for that
month. Include test results for all patients in all care settings with the following exclusions: anatomic pathology tests, narrative
physician-interpreted tests (ie, bone marrow biopsies and peripheral smear reports), and point-of-care tests.

Performance Indicator
 • Test Result Correction Rate (per 10,000 billable tests)




                                    Outpatient Order Entry Errors QT17
 Order accuracy bears an obvious relationship to the quality of laboratory testing. When the laboratory fails to complete a
 requested test, it delays the diagnostic evaluation, potentially extending a patient’s hospital stay and prolonging therapy. When
 the laboratory completes a test that was not requested, the cost of care increases, patients may be subjected to
 unnecessary phlebotomy, and laboratory efficiency declines.

Objective
Measure the incidence of incorrectly interpreted and entered outpatient physician test orders into the laboratory computer,
compare performance across institutions, and track performance over time.

Data Collection
On six pre-selected weekdays per month, participants will compare eight outpatient requisitions or order sheets to the orders
entered into the laboratory’s information system to determine if any order entry errors occurred. Order entry error categories
include requesting physician errors; incorrect, missing, and extra test errors; test priority errors; and non-routine routing request
errors. This monitor excludes tests performed in transfusion medicine/blood bank or anatomic pathology. This monitor also
excludes tests from the following patient care settings: inpatient, ED, ambulatory surgery, urgent care, chest pain center, 23-hour
short stay facility, employee health department, outpatient screening fair/promotion, and dialysis center.

   Q-TRACKS




                             Specimen Acceptability in Blood Bank QT18
    Appropriate collection and labeling of patient specimens are essential for accurate specimen analysis and reporting of test
    results. Mislabeling of blood bank specimens can result in catastrophic outcomes when patients receive incompatible red blood
    cells. Accrediting agencies, such as AABB and the CAP (TRM.30550, 30575), require monitoring of key specimen quality issues
    and demonstration of a system for continual process improvement. This Q-TRACKS monitor will allow you to compare your
    performance to your peers.

    Objective
    Identify and characterize incorrectly collected and labeled blood specimens submitted to the blood bank for testing.

    Data Collection
    On a weekly basis, participants will record the total number of specimens submitted to the blood bank and the number of
    rejected specimens. Participants will also report the primary reason for specimen rejection based on the following categories:
     • Wrong collection container         • Requisition does not match specimen        • Duplicate specimen
     • Unlabeled specimen                 • Specimen hemolyzed                         • Specimen with any suitability concerns
     • Incompletely labeled specimen      • Specimen clotted                             later reported by caregivers
     • Mislabeled specimen                • Insufficient specimen volume               • Other reason for rejection (ie, broken
                                                                                         specimen)

    Participants will provide weekly numbers of ABO/Rh typing results discrepant from the historical record.

Point-of-Care Programs
In many hospitals today, laboratory testing has shifted from the central main laboratory to inpatient rooms,
emergency departments, and intensive care units. We have developed this section in response to this shift and the
increased use of point-of-care instruments in the hospital. This section will help you select the most appropriate
proficiency testing products for staff members who work near patient and bedside testing in the hospital setting.
For additional information about selecting the right products for your institution, contact the CAP at 800-323-4040
option 1, then 2.
Use the following charts to choose the proficiency testing products to meet your testing needs.

      T Get a customized report that provides a summary of laboratory performance that includes peer group statistics
        and enhanced diagnostic information for early insight into potential problems.
       Note: The College of American Pathologists Laboratory Accreditation Program requires an additional calibration
      verification process for methods calibrated less frequently than once every six months. Please review the inspection
      checklist for information about suitable verification material for any method that is calibrated less often than at
      six-month intervals. The Calibration Verification/Linearity Surveys assess agreement of a laboratory with the
      method manufacturer’s calibration settings, but they do not validate accuracy traceable to reference methods.

   All LN Surveys provide individual evaluation reports by analytes, Executive Summary, and graphical plots for linearity and calibration
   verification.

   Linearity Surveys include linearity targets based on clinical relevance and general characteristics of currently available
   methods. These criteria may not reflect the specific characteristics of current single dose unit technology methods.
   Laboratories using single dose unit technology should decide if the linearity targets are appropriate for the clinical needs
   of their patients.

    Additional Information
    The College of American Pathologists and the National Kidney Disease Education
    Program have an initiative to produce a gold standard to harmonize clinically reported
    creatinine values. This initiative is analagous to what the federal health agencies and the
    clinical laboratory community did to improve the accuracy of cholesterol and
    glycohemoglobin testing.

    Additional Information
    Expanded Bacteriology (DEX) is an educational opportunity that provides:
      • Culture and susceptibility testing challenges for microbiology laboratories that
        perform complete identification and susceptibility of bacterial isolates including
        less common or problematic bacteria
      • More exposure to emerging bacterial pathogens and novel resistance
        mechanisms
      • Ability to recognize and identify organisms that exhibit multiple drug-resistance
        patterns
      • Recovery and identification of mixed pathogens such as yeast and bacteria in
        cultures containing multiple organisms

    Additional Information
    The Laboratory Preparedness Exercise (LPX) was developed as a collaborative effort
    between the College of American Pathologists, the Centers for Disease Control and
    Prevention (CDC), and the Association of Public Heath Laboratories (APHL). Laboratories
    will be sent live organisms that either exhibit characteristics of bioterrorism agents or
    demonstrate epidemiologic importance and will be expected to respond following
    Laboratory Response Network Sentinel Laboratory Guidelines if a bioterrorism agent is
    suspected. All agents provided are excluded from the CDC’s select agent list. These may
    include strains of Bacillus anthracis, Yersinia pestis, Francisella tularensis, and Brucella
    abortus that have been modified and are safe for testing in a laboratory that contains a
    certified Class II Biological Safety Cabinet and is capable of handling Category A and B
    agents.

      The CAP’s Sample Exchange Registry
      for Alternative Assessment
      The College of American Pathologists (CAP) announces the
      expansion of the Sample Exchange Registry for Alternative
      Assessment (formerly known as the Registry Service for Genetic
      Testing). This Internet-based service connects laboratories
      performing esoteric genetic testing where no formal proficiency
      testing is available.

      • Laboratories can participate in the registry service at
        any time.

      • When the CAP identifies at least three laboratories testing for the
        same genetic disorder, we will facilitate the sample exchange.

      Laboratories may now submit purified DNA. Upon receipt, the
      CAP will distribute the material to laboratories testing for the same
      disorder. The laboratories will test the samples and send their results
New


      to the CAP. The data will be anonymized, and each individual
      laboratory will receive its own results along with an anonymous
      summary report for all participants.

      Visit our Web page at www.cap.org/SampleExchange to access
      this service, and fill out the contact information form.

      For more information, email your questions to sahmad@cap.org or
      call 800-323-4040 ext. 7747.
