Description

The evaluation of urine samples is a core component of quality medical care. Improper collection, handling and preparation of samples can render test results questionable or invalid, potentially leading to a missed or erroneous diagnosis. Although the final evaluation and diagnosis remains solely in the hands of the attending veterinarian, the accuracy of that diagnosis can depend on the skill and knowledge of the medical support team.

An overall understanding of the components of urine, along with normal and abnormal results, is critical for the accurate running and reporting of tests. Clinical Pathology: The Clear Path to Urine Collection and Evaluation is a 6-week course designed to help participants improve their knowledge and skills and will help veterinary practices provide high quality laboratory services to their clients and patients. Participants are not required to work in practice to complete this course.

This course was previously titled Basic Principles of Urinalysis.
