PRLog - Aug. 19, 2014 - LONDON, U.K. -- SMi is proud to have Tim Woods, Manager & Deputy Director at UK NEQAS for Blood Coagulation giving a keynote address at this year’s 11th annual Point of Care Conference taking place in London on October 27th-28th 2014. His knowledge and expertise will provide key insight into quality assurance in point of care.

SMi recently caught up with Tim Woods and here is what he had to say:

Q. What do you think are the most interesting sessions in this conference?

A: “The whole programme is certainly interesting, but due to the impact on UK NEQAS BC, I am particularly looking forward to hearing the proposals from UKAS on ‘The Future of POCT Accreditation’.”

Q: What will attendees take away from your talk?

A: “I hope that attending delegates will take away an understanding of the importance and value of quality assurance, particularly the part played by EQA and the comprehensive programmes offered by UK NEQAS. I also hope that delegates will see that UK NEQAS programmes are not just focussed on the ‘correctional oversight’ aspects of proficiency testing, that does have a place in ensuring the validity of results, but centre on the educational aspects of EQA, promoting good practice and quality of patient care.”
