  • 1.  Workforce in the Shadow of Healthcare -An Update on the Survival Status of Laboratory Medicine and Public Health publication

    Most of society by now are at least somewhat aware of the severe shortages of frontline nurses and doctors. #workforce #shortages were here even before the pandemic – but now, like most professions, the #healthcareprofessionals and #publichealth workforce shortage has reached dangerously low staffing levels. Survey research shows that since 2020, nearly one in five healthcare workers have quit their jobs, and research suggests that up to 47% of healthcare workers plan to leave their positions by 2025.
    While we all hear about physician and nursing shortages, the issue goes far deeper into dozens of healthcare professions. In particular is the #medicallaboratory / #laboratory and public health workforce. The public rarely gets a glimpse of the monumental lifesaving work they do in the shadows of healthcare. Learn more about what we are doing in this important article by Angela C Tomei Robinson MS MLS ASCPcm Laboratory Medicine and Dr. Rodney E Rohde, SV, SM, MB (ASCP), FACSc, in this hot of the press Biomedical Journal of Scientific & Technical Research (BJSTR) article! #Labvocate #Labucate #Lab4Life #WeSaveLivesEveryday #IamASCLS #ascp #ASCLS #ascpsometeam

    Thank you 
    Glad to assist 
    Share and utilize as needed

    Spread the word to OPPOSE recent misguided proposals lowering personnel standards and SUPPORT quality long-term SOLUTIONS to shortages 

    There are still very successful traditional educational curriculums available- as well as many new innovative programs and strategic affiliations maintaining quality standards of personnel for patient care 

    And many facilities may incorporate various types of laboratory policies and procedures that definitely enhance quality standards of laboratory testing at the bench. .  

    ATTRACT RECRUIT RETAIN qualified board-certified and where applicable govt right to practice profession licensed Medical Laboratory Professionals for quality standards of laboratory testing.  

    Patient care deserves no less
