Quality in Pathology: Topical Collection

Quality in Pathology thumbnail pictureWe need to better understand what we mean by “quality” in pathology and guidance on how to have efficient quality systems with as little bureaucracy as possible. How do we improve the reliability of our testing, the quality of grading, and classification where relevant? What is already good and what needs improvement? The Quality in Pathology topical collection aims to provide a forum for such articles and also opinion papers.

Only through high-quality diagnoses and effective demonstration to the patient can we maintain a high level of trust in pathology. Without trust in our profession, we will not survive.
