IQCP and CLIA, continued

CLIA defines three parts that must be documented for an IQCP. Each part will be discussed more fully in the following pages of the course:
  1. Risk assessment-- identify sources of potential failures/errors
  2. Quality control plan (QCP)-- practices and procedures that are in place to control test quality
  3. Quality assessment-- Continuous quality monitoring to evaluate the effectiveness of the QCP
Note that an IQCP is not an acceptible alternative for QC in anatomic pathology. This includes histopathology, oral pathology, and cytology.
