Encouraging Quality Pathology Ordering in Australia’s Public Hospital

National Coalition of Public Pathology

This project focused on the public hospital setting to document, pool and review the knowledge and experience in Australian public hospitals with a view to better manage demand for, and use of, pathology testing in patient care. The project considered lessons learned and future directions for sustainable change. The objectives were to seek and add to the knowledge base in this area and contribute to setting directions and developing initiatives for sustainable change through the National Prescribing Service and other national initiatives.

In considering possible areas for future action, the project considered where public pathology services may best contribute and add value to building the evidence base and extending the effort on improvements in appropriate pathology ordering and utilisation in Australia's public hospital sector.
