Medical lab science postgraduate college advocates collaboration among health experts in Africa

By Hassan Zaggi

The West Africa Postgradu­ate College of Medical Lab­oratory Science, has insisted that when healthcare professionals work as a team, they will have the skills to unlock important medical information that is pivotal to the di­agnosis, treatment and prevention of disease.

The Chairman, Steering Board, West African Postgraduate College of Medical Laboratory Science, Dr. Godswill Okara, disclosed this at a pre- media briefing on the induc­tion/investiture and 2020 annual congress of the College, in Abuja, yesterday.

The briefing, he, said, “is to bring our people in Nigeria up to speed on the forthcoming induction/in­vestiture of Foundation Fellows and the 2020 annual congress of the col­lege taking place at the Sheraton Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos, on the Febru­ary 22-23.”

Dr. Okara, therefore, reiterated that, “there is no reason we should not work harmoniously with phy­sicians in the overall interest of the patient.

“The relationship and roles should be complementary to each other in an atmosphere of respect and reciprocity.

“This is the joint professional model that has been used to pro­duce a standardized and struc­tured approach for the delivery of the training and assessment of bio­medical laboratory scientists wish­ing to undertake histopathological reporting.
