RE: [Histonet] CAP survey slides

From:"Kari Bradshaw"

When doing the IHC survey you stain only the required stain for each case.
Example:  MK-01; ALK, Pan Keratin,CD3,CD15,CD20,CD30, and LCA.  Each case
also needs to have an H&E and a negative control.  You have been provided
with plenty of slides to accomplish everything that is asked and them some
extra for redo's if needed. Once all of your stains are completed make a
copy of the Survey Result Form and Clinical Histories(pg.4 of Kit
Instructions) for each of the pathologists that will be reviewing the
slides.  The slides will need to be passed from one pathologists to the
next, but each pathologists will record their own results on their own form,
without sharing results.  In our laboratory, the Technical Director compiles
the results from everyone who participated and then they are submitted. If
you are CAP accredited you should have a policy that outlines how your peer
educational program/proficiency testing program operates.

Hi out there,
I have the new CAP survey IHC slides for 5 pathologists. My problem is, is
that I only have 4 cases/10 slides each case and each pathologist is
supposed to do this now. Can anyone tell me how this is done? I don't think
I have enough slides for all of them.
