Blatant push for NSH teleconferences, so click delete now if you don't want
to know anything more about them.
The 2008 (and Dec. 2007) teleconferences are now listed on the NSH webpage
Or, go to
Click on Meetings on left
Click on Teleconferences
Held once a month on the fourth Wednesday of the month, from 1-2 pm Eastern
- no teleconference in Sept. 2008 due to NSH S/C
- Nov and Dec. 2008 will be the 3rd Wednesday, due to the holidays.
Topics range from
- special stains (bacteria, carbohydrates, kidney biopsies)
- techniques (frozen sectioning, radiofrequency energy in surgery)
- IHC (cytology specimens, prostate, her2/neu validation)
- safety (substitutes, solvent recycling)
- management (CPT coding)
All those who attend, or who later listen to the CD and submit the test,
receive 1 hour continuing education (CE), which can be used to satisfy CE
requirements for your work, state licensure, or ASCP CMP.
Cost is $125 for each, or $1100 for all 11 (that's only $100 each, for a
savings of $275, if sign up before Jan. 18, 2008).
Before the teleconference, you receive an email link to the PowerPoint
presentation, handouts, sign in sheet and instruction sheet. After the
teleconference, you receive a CD with all the same material PLUS the audio
of the teleconference with a test. For anyone who could not attend the
teleconference, they can take the CD, watch the PowerPoint, listen to the
audio, read the handouts, take the test, and fax it to NSH and still receive
1 hour CE, up to 2 years after the original date of the teleconference.
(And now the disclaimer - I'm the NSH Teleconference Coordinator, but no, I
don't make any money by doing the responsibilities of this position or by
getting more people to sign up for teleconference. My only goal in this is
to help people obtain CE and become more knowledgable in our field.)
