[Histonet] Continuing education on the web - free

From:"Morken, Tim - Labvision"

Dear Histonetters,


Lab Vision/NeoMarkers has always followed the philosophy that the needs of the customer come before any concern with products. Lab Vision started out as a resource for antibody information and was known among researchers as a place to go to find out how to get an antibody even if Lab Vision did not carry the product. In other cases we have offered technical help to laboratories even if they did not use our products. Continuing with that philosophy Lab Vision recently instituted a free tutorial program for histotechnologists that can be used for personal and in-house continuing education. Our feeling is that continuing education for histotechnologists is still a difficult proposition since so many do not have the opportunity to attend meetings and conventions. The internet offers a way to bring high-quality continuing education opportunities to every histotechnologist at their convenience.


We have one tutorial posted now covering "The Role of the Histology Lab in Bioterrorism" (aimed at the US audience) which was first presented at the 2002 NSH meeting. Other tutorials will be added later as we develop them. These are different than some others because tests must be passed in order to move to the successive sections of the tutorial. After finishing the tutorial the user will receive a certificate confirming completion. We hope that these tutorials will help histotechnologists and laboratories with their requirements for continuing education. We are in discussions to become a provider of programs that the ASCP and state licensing boards will accept for their requirements of continuing education.


To access the tutorial please go to the Lab Vision website (www.labvision.com) and click on the navigation button "Tutorial Program." Each user must create a user account and give some information that will be used only to send a certificate at the finish of the program. No information given will be used for sales or marketing purposes. This program is intended solely for educational purposes.


Please contact me with any questions.
