Has your laboratory director ever requested checklists for macroscopic specimen examination supervision templates or competency assessment for pathologists' assistants?  Are you finding yourself struggling to locate these documents online without success? 

The AAPA has a solution: our Inspection Readiness Kit!

To assist pathologists' assistants, pathologists, and laboratory directors in achieving a successful CAP inspection, and to clearly define performance expectations, the AAPA now offers guidelines for personnel requirements competency assessment of pathologists' assistants, and for pathologists' assistants who perform macroscopic tissue examination. 

This kit includes provisions from the Anatomic Pathology and Laboratory General Accreditation Checklists of the College of American Pathologists that have been licensed by the AAPA.  This kit addresses only those Accreditation Checklist items directly related to pathologists' assistants.
