Using Labs Wisely During Global Blood Tube and Other Resource Shortages
COVID-19 has put an extraordinary strain on laboratory medicine in Canada due to critical shortages in blood tubes, devices, and lab staffing.
To address the need to conserve tubes and critical laboratory resources, the Canadian Society of Clinical Chemists and the Canadian Association of Medical Biochemists have assembled two sets of relevant Choosing Wisely Canada recommendations—for hospitals and primary care.
How you can get involved:
- Download the recommendations relevant to primary care and hospitals.
- Share these resources through your network to help raise awareness about the urgent need to use lab resources wisely.
- Attend Choosing Wisely Canada’s upcoming webinar on Using Labs Wisely During Global Blood Tube and Other Resource Shortages.
