Michael Noble, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of British Columbia and chair of the Program Office for Laboratory Quality Management, emphasizes that while increased awareness, education and standardization of information and protocols have helped improve laboratory quality, people still need to be reminded that the pursuit of quality is a commitment that needs constant time, effort and money. Hence, he advises lab managers to start small, stay committed and keep an eye on the “cost” of having poor quality as opposed to focusing on just the costs incurred for quality improvements.
