This two-day conference will enhance your comprehension of issues in phlebotomy including obtaining quality blood collections from venous lines, handling difficult sticks, trends in lead screening in children, and hearing first-hand experiences utilizing central versus regionalized phlebotomy teams for hospital collections.
Additionally, you will have the opportunity to learn about stress management, creating a respectful and safe work environment, bridging the generation gap at work, and changing team behaviors using positive reinforcement. There will be interactive case discussions, and a panel discussion with representatives from quality, education, inpatient and outpatient supervisors, and human resources.
The conference format balances topics of general interest, which are presented in large group sessions, with breakout sessions geared towards specific areas of interest.
