ASCP Certification: The Standard of Excellence

RESULTS

The observations and interviews (n=160) confirmed and/or uncovered the tasks performed by MTs, MLTs and PBTs.  

Regional differences in tasks were noted, all of which were included in the survey. Additionally, the combination of data collection methods enhanced the responses from individuals.

Those laboratory professionals who were more technical gave more detailed information on technical tasks, such as specifics involved in completing a toxicology panel. Those in supervisory or management positions provided information dealing with the less scientific aspects of the career, such as communication and management.

The observations and interviews completed at industrial and research sites provided an even broader view of these professionals’ roles and responsibilities.  (Table 3)

Data from the observations and interviews led to an ethnographic report. This served as the foundation for the resultant fifteen-page survey instrument. (Table 4)

The practice analysis survey instrument was distributed to more than 17,000 ASCP-BOR certified individuals.
