Description

This self-instructional program is designed to help you better understand the various implications of laboratory diagnostic tests and apply the results to the care of your patients and clients. Even though we rely on laboratory results, sometimes our understanding of how to interpret the meaning contained within the numbers lags behind. You become empowered when you learn to "read" the test results. This course meets the Florida Board of Acupuncture 'Biomedical Science' requirement.
