Increasing On-Campus Immunohematology Laboratory Activities to Prepare Students for Clinical Rotations

From the 2020 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (February 29, 2020)
Presented by Bill Zundel and Justin Rhees
This presentation will compare and contrast how a 2+2 MLS program (Brigham Young University) and an MLT to MLS program (Weber State University) have increased their on-campus laboratory activities and implemented simulation and interprofessional educational experiences into the immunohematology laboratory curriculum to prepare their students for clinical rotations.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Compare and contrast the immunohematology laboratory procedures and processes used to prepare students from a 2+2 MLS program (BYU) and an MLT to MLS program (WSU) for their clinical rotation experiences, including: Donor screening and phlebotomy, component processing, quality control, ABO discrepancies, maternal/neonatal testing, and antibody screening and identification.
2. Describe examples of how on-campus programs can increase their immunohematology laboratory activities and implement simulation in a cost-effective manner.
3. Describe examples of how on-campus programs can increase their immunohematology laboratory activities and implement simulation in a cost-effective manner.
