Clinician vs. Laboratorian:

Conflict or Collaboration?

Presenter: Marcia L. Zucker, PhD

This webinar will:

  • Describe those factors which lead to conflict between lab and clinicians

  • Propose changes to their processes and procedures to minimize these conflicts

  • Implement collaborative initiatives to alleviate conflict
