Re: Age Specific Competencies
|From:||Carrie Kyle <firstname.lastname@example.org>|
maybe i've interpreted this incorrectly.....but i understand the age-specific competencies to refer to the lab tech's ability to deal with patients of various ages. when i worked in a hospital, we had to review guidelines for how to handle infant/toddler, young children, adolescent, adult and geriatric patients. this was done annually along with the other safety stuff. in many labs, the age-related competencies don't really apply to histology since we don't have patient contact, unless you have the lucky duties of assisting with things like FNA's, renal or bm bx collections.
