From the 2023 Emerging Laboratory Managers Collaborative Conference
Presented by Eric Stanford, MHA, MLS(ASCP)cm
Laboratory data impacts every patient in health care, from minor checkups to major health needs. We may forget that this data can create unintentional bias if not carefully implemented. The eGFR equation is one piece of laboratory data with huge implications in many areas of health care and using the wrong equation can create unnecessary barriers for some patients.
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to
- Summarize the role of eGFR in nephrology and kidney health.
- Identify the racial and ethnic bias created by existing eGFR equations.
- List the most critical items to include while onboarding a new employee.
