Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

In the current rapidly changing health care environment, the role of medical technology/clinical laboratory science personnel is expanding. An increased awareness of the business aspects of health care is expected. Therefore, the entry level laboratory practitioner must be cognizant of the financial, personnel, operational, and marketing issues affecting the laboratory in order to successfully perform and compete in this continuously changing environment.

Principles of Clinical Laboratory Management: A Study Guide and Workbook was designed to allow the learner to develop basic management competencies through a variety of learning experiences. The book can be used in a classroom situation or as a self-tutorial instructional manual. Each chapter is divided as follows:

  • Objectives: competencies that should be attained upon completion of each chapter. The objectives are leveled (1,11, and III) as a guide to the learner regarding the depth of comprehension that should be attained. Level I indicates an ability to recall the material, Level 11 indicates the ability to apply the material, and Level III indicates the ability to solve problems in new situations.
  • Topic Summary: a brief introductory narrative regarding the topic. Selected terms and phrases are in bold-faced type to emphasize a concept. Subheadings are used as appropriate based on the chapter topic. The learner may gain more information regarding the topic by reviewing the bibliography and internet sources as well as other management materials.
  • Bibliography: suggested readings to enhance knowledge regarding the topic.
  • Internet Resources: resources available on the Web. Although the authors have found these sites to be helpful, the authors do not endorse any site.
  • Questions: a method for the learner to engage in reviewing the narrative information. The questions specifically address the cognitive skills. Each question is coded to the corresponding objective and level for easy reference.
  • Exercises: activities in which the learner might engage to enhance knowledge of the topic. These exercises address the psychomotor and cognitive skills of the learner and correspond to pertinent chapter objectives. Exercise objectives primarily address the higher taxonomic levels.
  • Cases: available to stimulate the learner's problem-solving abilities regarding the topic. The cases are a level III learning activity, correspond to a pertinent chapter objective, and address primarily the cognitive domain; however, some may address the psychomotor domain.

At the end of the book, the learner will find

  • Answers: for the chapter questions.
  • Commentaries: a discussion by the author of the cases. The learner should understand that, primarily, the commentaries present only one possible viewpoint of the case solutions and that other solutions may be valid. In fact, the authors encourage the learner to explore alternative solutions as a means of developing better problem-solving skills.
