Details Date
Co-Founder, National Society for Pre-Analytics in Laboratory Medicine (PALM Society) along with my research fellow (Dr. Ann Leonard) and Dr Paula O'Shea. Patient mis-identification is acknowledged as the most common source of medical error around the world, according to the US Institute of Medicine. Our newly established national PALM society aims to improve awareness of pre-analytical errors such as incorrect patient identification, and erroneous blood sample labelling which can affect up to 15% of all blood samples taken in some situations. The National Society will develop and implement error-reduction strategies in laboratory medicine around Ireland to combat this problem. We have already held an inaugural national launch meeting under the auspices of TCD Clinical Biochemistry Unit at Tallaght University Hospital in September 2018 which was attended by over 150 people. 2018-2019
