Background

In order to strengthen the collaboration between IFCC and its Corporate Members and to better address their specific needs and challenges the IFCC Executive Board approved the establishment of the IFCC Task Force Corporate Members (TF-CM), that will report directly to the IFCC Executive Board. The intention behind this is:

  • Better representation of Corporate Members within IFCC and better understanding of their needs
  • Receiving advice from Corporate Members to improve the practice of laboratory medicine
  • Facilitate discussion among Corporate Members and identification of common topics
  • Improving engagement of Corporate Members
  • Direct dialogue with the IFCC Executive Board

Proposed Objectives to be Further Defined:

  • Frequency and locations of IFCC conferences
  • Alternative funding structure for IFCC by Corporate Members
  • Collaboration of IFCC with Clinical Societies and Regulators on guidelines
  • Promote the value of laboratory testing
