Control and daily internal quality monitoring are equally as
important. We have joined the internationally organized QAP
in clinical chemistry and immunology since 1994. Other QAP organized
by local institutes have covered the area of haematology, coagulation
studies, microbiology and cytology screening sections.
These programs are very demanding and have high standards. Most
of the Hong Kong participants are from regional hospitals. We
used this QAP as one of the tools to monitor accuracy and our
performance amongst the participants has so far been very satisfactory.
