eJIFCC archive fully available on the IFCC website 2018-09-17T08:10:40Z /ifcc-news/2018-09-04-ejifcc-archive-fully-reorganized/ IFCC Office The Communication and Publications Division (CPD) of the IFCC is pleased to announce the reorganization and availability on-line of the full eJIFCC archive, in a new format.

The electronic Journal of the IFCC (eJIFCC) is a platinum open-access journal; it is a member of the Committee on Publications Ethics - COPE, and indexed on PubMed Central® (PMC) since 2016.

eJIFCC publishes high-quality articles, debates, reviews, case studies and editorials relevant to clinical laboratorians to assist the development of the field of clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine worldwide. Manuscripts are fully peer reviewed and immediately free to access and download from http://www.ifcc.org/ifcc-communications-publications-division-cpd/ifcc-publications/ejifcc-journal/.

Reorganization of the eJIFCC archive is a valuable milestone for IFCC: it significantly improves access to eJIFCC articles and will help to promote IFCC as renowned source for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine scientific articles and research. This important task has been achieved with thanks to the efforts of Insoft, IFCC publishing partner.

IFCC TF-YS Survey "YS training & career" 2018-09-03T15:01:48Z /ifcc-news/2018-09-03-ifcc-tf-ys-survey/ IFCC Office IFCC TF-YS Survey: YS training & career

YS constitute a vast pool of global talents that have the energy to change geography of knowledge in fundamental ways. Thus, we are approaching you with the “YS training & career survey” which IFCC-TF YS wishes to carryout to know, communicate and share information about the diversity of YS world-wide.

This survey is being conducted to acquire preliminary information of young colleague’s education, training, career path, research interest, field of work and association with TFYS. This will enable us to share and focus our energies to find support for base programmes that are needed.

Kindly find here the link to complete the survey: IFCC TF-YS Survey: YS training & career

All the young colleagues are encouraged to participate in the activities of IFCC-TFYS!

TF YS Logo

The International Federation of Clinical Chemistry & Laboratory Medicine (IFCC) assembled the Task Force Young Scientists (TF-YS) in 2010. The aim of TF-YS is to ensure that young scientists make a significant and growing contribution to the activities of IFCC and other National programmes.

WG-GMECC organizes a Symposium in cooperation with the AACC Critical and Point-of-Care Testing Division 2018-08-02T11:12:45Z /ifcc-news/2018-08-02-wg-gmecc-symposium/ IFCC Office The special presentation from the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry (IFCC) – WG GMECC Session will be held on Saturday, September 29, 2018, 11:20– 12:45:

Glucose monitoring in critically ill patients; what do we need to know?

An overview of the IFCC report: "How Should Glucose Meters be Evaluated for Critical Care?"click here to access the full report.

Speakers:

- Cynthia Bowman, MD; Baystate Health, Springfield, MA – US;

- Sean Cunningham, PhD, EuSpLM; Dublin, Ireland.

 

The Role of Point-of-Care Testing in a Value-Based Healthcare Landscape Symposium will focus on the current and future role of point-of-care testing in a healthcare environment with an emphasis on value and quality of care.

Attendees will learn how point-of-care testing contributes to healthcare value through faster result turnaround time, lower testing costs, improved patient linkage to care and outcomes, and greater satisfaction for patients and healthcare providers.

Session topics will address public health and disease prevention, diagnosis and monitoring disease for the critically ill, at-home patient self-management, direct-to-consumer testing, and new/emerging technologies.
