LMP Q&A BUG: Chris Cursio

LMP QA BUG

 

This week, Chris Cursio, manager of point-of-care testing (POCT) was ‘infected’ by the LMP Q&A BUG and the nomination came from fellow dog lover, (***hint: more ‘dog’ drawings to come) Jaimelyn Rara. Check out Jamielyn’s photo Q&A, HERE.

As manager of point-of-care testing, Chris oversees the process where lab testing is taken to the bedside and delivered by non-lab staff across UHN. Chris and her Team oversee initial operator training where UHN staff learn how to perform a test, as well as QC testing, ongoing operator training and proficiency training for each POCT program. Chris also works on overseeing quality assurance for point-of-care testing for many of our partner sites. Testing at the bedside has huge advantages for the speed of which results can be delivered for patient care and there are about 360,000 point-of-care tests administered annually throughout UHN. In addition to these responsibilities, Chris is also the site lab lead at Toronto Western Hospital, and the clinical coordinator of the MLT/MLA student training program.
