The ISN Quality Assurance Summit (iQAS) is a quarterly conference series designed to promote pragmatic, sustainable and effective quality management practices within the medical laboratory setting.
Effective laboratory diagnosis remains a key driver in ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all in the Nigerian health care delivery system.
iQAS equips stakeholders, including Laboratory Scientists and Quality Assurance Officers, with the knowledge to improve technical proficiency and develop the ability to produce precise and accurate test results which will, in turn, promote optimum health care management.
The 5th edition of the ISN Quality Assurance Summit took place online on Saturday, June 6, 2020. The event was themed: “QUALITY HEALTHCARE PRACTICE IN NIGERIA: CHALLENGES AND THE WAY FORWARD".
Our speakers, Prof. Oluyemi Akinloye, Professor of Clinical Chemistry and Molecular Diagnosis at the University of Lagos; and Mr. Taofik Oloruko-Oba, Head of Diagnostics, West Africa at Roche Products explored valuable lessons learned from the pandemic and highlighted the necessary course of action towards achieving a more stable healthcare sector in Nigeria.
