Vale Michael Metz 2018-10-03T14:50:24Z /ifcc-news/2018-10-02-dr-michael-metz/ IFCC Office Dr Michael Metz was a dual fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia.

A graduate of the University of Nebraska College of Medicine, Michael trained in paediatrics at the University of Minnesota and in chemical pathology in Adelaide at the Women’s & Children’s Hospital (WCH) and the Institute of Medical and Veterinary Science. He practised chemical pathology in Adelaide at the WCH site of SA Pathology and at Clinpath Laboratories where he was director of clinical chemistry.

Michael was a foundation member of the AACB Paediatric Special Interest Group and Chair of the RCPA QAP sweat testing working party. He was also a member of the advisory board of the Atherosclerosis Australasia Familial Hypercholesterolaemia Registry and the sole consultant at the lipid clinic of the WCH. He was a clinical senior lecturer at the University of Adelaide School of Paediatrics and Reproductive Health. Mostly he liked looking after the kids.

As Chair of the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry Task Force on Pediatric Laboratory Medicine, Michael contributed to improving the diagnosis and management of patients from birth to adolescence. His dedication and warm friendly nature will be greatly missed.

eJIFCC archive fully available on the IFCC website 2018-09-17T08:10:40Z /ifcc-news/2018-09-04-ejifcc-archive-fully-reorganized/ IFCC Office The Communication and Publications Division (CPD) of the IFCC is pleased to announce the reorganization and availability on-line of the full eJIFCC archive, in a new format.

The electronic Journal of the IFCC (eJIFCC) is a platinum open-access journal; it is a member of the Committee on Publications Ethics - COPE, and indexed on PubMed Central® (PMC) since 2016.

eJIFCC publishes high-quality articles, debates, reviews, case studies and editorials relevant to clinical laboratorians to assist the development of the field of clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine worldwide. Manuscripts are fully peer reviewed and immediately free to access and download from http://www.ifcc.org/ifcc-communications-publications-division-cpd/ifcc-publications/ejifcc-journal/.

Reorganization of the eJIFCC archive is a valuable milestone for IFCC: it significantly improves access to eJIFCC articles and will help to promote IFCC as renowned source for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine scientific articles and research. This important task has been achieved with thanks to the efforts of Insoft, IFCC publishing partner.

IFCC TF-YS Survey "YS training & career" 2018-09-03T15:01:48Z /ifcc-news/2018-09-03-ifcc-tf-ys-survey/ IFCC Office IFCC TF-YS Survey: YS training & career

YS constitute a vast pool of global talents that have the energy to change geography of knowledge in fundamental ways. Thus, we are approaching you with the “YS training & career survey” which IFCC-TF YS wishes to carryout to know, communicate and share information about the diversity of YS world-wide.

This survey is being conducted to acquire preliminary information of young colleague’s education, training, career path, research interest, field of work and association with TFYS. This will enable us to share and focus our energies to find support for base programmes that are needed.

Kindly find here the link to complete the survey: IFCC TF-YS Survey: YS training & career

All the young colleagues are encouraged to participate in the activities of IFCC-TFYS!

TF YS Logo

The International Federation of Clinical Chemistry & Laboratory Medicine (IFCC) assembled the Task Force Young Scientists (TF-YS) in 2010. The aim of TF-YS is to ensure that young scientists make a significant and growing contribution to the activities of IFCC and other National programmes.

Speakers:

- Cynthia Bowman, MD; Baystate Health, Springfield, MA – US;

- Sean Cunningham, PhD, EuSpLM; Dublin, Ireland.

 

The Role of Point-of-Care Testing in a Value-Based Healthcare Landscape Symposium will focus on the current and future role of point-of-care testing in a healthcare environment with an emphasis on value and quality of care.

Attendees will learn how point-of-care testing contributes to healthcare value through faster result turnaround time, lower testing costs, improved patient linkage to care and outcomes, and greater satisfaction for patients and healthcare providers.

Session topics will address public health and disease prevention, diagnosis and monitoring disease for the critically ill, at-home patient self-management, direct-to-consumer testing, and new/emerging technologies.
