WELCOME

CAMP PODS is a webinar series, consisting of 10 one-hour sessions that will take place from January to November 2021 on the 1st Thursday of each month with the exception of our first session, which will take place on January 14th.

The goal of this series is to build a strong Oncology Laboratory Medicine community, where best practices and common challenges can be discussed.  Insights gained will be key to implement across Canada and will help streamline laboratory workflows and practice for laboratory medicine, the end result of which will be improvements in the patient journey.
