RE: [Histonet] Pathology modernisation

From:"Kemlo Rogerson"

But I think that is my point Tony; Non-Gynae is seen as a bit of light
relief to make a 'Gynae Day' more palitable Cytology Labs are mainly
funded for their Gynae commitment and, it's my own belief, Non-Gynae
takes second place. You don't need to enter EQA to do Non-Gynae, do you?
You don't actually need the 'Screening Certificate' do you? In my day
the 'Cert of Competence for Gynae and Systemic Cytology' had both
elements; am I right that the present one is only for Gynae? I know the
IBMS does an exam but I'm sure it is not needed to 'check' Non-Gynae. I
wait to be corrected by those that participate and those that lurk.

Non-Gynae needs to sit somewhere and if it's the Histologists that set a
better table, then so be it.

Some comments below:

" My question is, given that many histological
techniques are carried out on Non-Gynae specimens, could Non-Gynae sit
within Histology. It would divorce it from the 'Pap Factory' scenario
and could place it fairly and squarely where, in my opinion, it belongs.
Could Non-Gynae Cytology actually find its 'place in the sun' if it was
within the Histology Department of Cell Path? "

Having worked in a Private Gyne Cytology Lab as well as Hospital
Cytology Labs, I would miss screening the occasional General cytology
smear or FNA. It breaks up the monotony of many negative PAP smears.
(Don't get me wrong, I look forward to the day when there are no more
CINs or CIS or other abnormalities).
