CONGRESS 2023 - Learnings from Parasitology EQAs: a discussion with UK NEQAS Parasitology

Last updated: 22nd September 2023

Global travel and migration trends have meant a huge increase in the numbers of people exposed to tropical parasitic diseases. Thus, there is an increasing need for robust, reproducible and reliable screening as well as diagnostic techniques. These existing and emerging technologies all currently co-exist; each with their own specific and general pitfalls and limitations. Thus, the need for fit-for-purpose qualitative EQAs or Proficiency Testing schemes for these parasite diagnostics remains pivotal and very timely. My talk at this congress will present findings and recommendations from Parasitology EQA schemes offered by UK NEQAS and will highlight the importance of quality management in the field.
