The clinical laboratory is a fantastic toolkit that doctors use on a daily basis, with 70% of downstream clinical decisions stemming from patient laboratory results. To better support collaborative care and enhance family physician/ nurse practitioner and specialist communication, the Shared Care Pathology Decision Support Initiative (PSDI) is hosting Burnaby’s first Interdisciplinary Lab Medicine Physician Symposium. The panel discussion and audience Q&A aims to explore a range of perspectives in medicine on the use of laboratory medicine, and how to improve systems and processes to maximize effectiveness of the clinical laboratory.


Registration for this event is required, and in-person registration closes on Monday, July 4th at noon. Virtual registration will close on Wednesday, July 6th. Please note that all Burnaby physicians (family doctors/ nurse practitioners/ specialists) will be eligible to receive 1.25 sessional for attending this event.
