Spotlight on Laboratory Medicine Best Practices (LMBP™)
Laboratory Medicine Best Practices (LMBP™) Initiative was launched in 2006 to establish an evidence-based process of identifying best practices for quality improvement in the laboratory.
Two online tutorials are available to help laboratory professionals better understand and apply LMBP™ methods. Both courses offer free continuing education.
Are you interested in learning more about the LMBP™ Initiative? Do you want to collaborate and contribute to improvements in clinical decision making and patient outcomes? Get involved by registering with the Laboratory Medicine Best Practices Network to receive LMBP™ project updates and announcements. You can also learn about opportunities to suggest topics, submit data for review, and comment on findings.

Perinatal Quality Collaborative Webinar
State Perinatal Quality Collaboratives (PQCs) are networks of perinatal care providers and public health professionals working to improve pregnancy outcomes for women and newborns. Many states have active collaboratives and others are in development. To assist states starting or growing their own collaboratives, CDC worked with statewide PQCs in California, New York, and Ohio to sponsor a series of Webinars.
In honor of National Birth Defects Prevention Month, we are highlighting one of the PQC webinars, “Perinatal Performance Measures and Data Collection.” This webinar provides an overview of perinatal performance measures, data collection sources, and real-time data feedback systems. Access the webinar.
