  1. CAP Alternative Assessments-Help!

    I'm sorry to be so green, but where can I find this communication?
  2. CAP Alternative Assessments-Help!

    I have emailed CAP for clarity, but I haven't received a response. I may give them a call on Tuesday when I'm back in the lab to get a quicker response.
  3. So, I asked this questions in another forum, but I'm going to try it here as well to see if I can get anyone to bite. With CAP, according to the Laboratory Activity Menu for Blood Bank, an alternative assessment is required for RBC antigen typing. It also states that " for activities requiring alternative assessment, labs can use PT provided by the CAP or other providers." Is this saying that we can count the antigen typing we do with the BB surveys as an alternative assessment as long as we get what the greater percentage of everyone else got when they did the same survey?
  4. Hello!

  5. Hello All, For CAP, what is everyone doing for Antigen Typing Alternate Proficiency testing? For my facility, CAP says an alternative assessment is required for this. Would the ungraded part of the J-A where we actually do antigen typing suffice for this requirement as long as our % is >98%? Side Note: I'm a newbie BB Tech Spec that will take any and all advice, recommendations, helpful hints, suggestions, and words of wisdom. Also, feel free to send cookies
