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.
