Every year Fondation Merieux in collaboration with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine organizes the Advanced Course on Diagnostics in beautiful Annecy, France. This year was the 10th edition and DATOS was invited to give a presentation on quality management.

Linda Oskam took the participants of the course on an interactive journey through the concepts of quality and how to best implement a quality management system in their own laboratory. This was highly appreciated and also led to discussions on how to motivate your staff to get on board and feel responsible for quality.
