AACC Academy has recently developed a process for creating guidance documents that will impart the expertise of the Academy’s Fellows. These short documents are designed to provide guidance on hot topics in the field of laboratory medicine in an expedient manner that will achieve maximum impact.
The Academy’s most recent document, "AACC Guidance Document on Laboratory Testing for the Assessment of Preterm Delivery," was released online on June 2, 2021, and was published in The Journal of Applied Laboratory Medicine.
If you are interested in proposing a guidance document on a specific topic, please review the Guidance Document Standard Operating Procedures for how to get started.
AACC Academy Scientific Shorts is a forum in which clinical laboratory professionals can discuss contemporary laboratory issues—from molecular pathology and genetics to patient safety—and present solutions and best practices.
