A Guide to Technical Consulting for the Clinical Laboratory offers consulting guidance to provide regulatory instruction to qualified individuals, especially medical technologists who want to pursue a career as a technical consultant for a clinical laboratory. Cathy Manske has more than 40 years' experience working in the field of medical technology as a laboratorian, researcher, and consultant. A Wisconsin transplant to Arizona, she was educated at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, receiving a B.S. in medical technology. Her early work experience was as a generalist in hospitals, and then specializing in microbiology and virology, ultimately becoming a technical consultant to physicians whose offices implemented in-house clinical laboratories. In 2003, she created and incorporated Clinical Laboratory Consultants, Ltd. Since then, she has helped set up more than 60 physicians' office laboratories of varying specialties including pediatric, cardiac, internal, rheumatoid, OBGYN, oncology, endocrinology, urology, and family practice. She also set up six reference laboratories. In addition to starting up clinical labs, she consults with over 20 laboratories in an ongoing technical consultant capacity, and occasionally serving as laboratory director. She successfully guides her clients to full CLIA compliance, while ensuring both accurate testing analysis and profitability. Beyond her thorough knowledge of standard lab practices and prevailing state and federal regulations, the author's strength lies in communicating effectively with CLIA inspectors, doctors, administrators, and laboratory staff. Cathy L. Manske hopes her book will encourage more medical technologists and qualified professionals to pursue the field of laboratory technical consulting. This is her first book.
