[Histonet] CAP Inspection question for Proficiency Testing in Histology

  I used to have "competency check lists" and "standard of performance descriptions" for each mayor task. Along the year I used to observe the activity of each HT in each task and evaluated them against those lists.
  The deficiencies I found were documented and used for the individual PI of each HT, which went to their personal file.
  When during the CAP inspections I was asked about this aspect I showed them the PI developed for each HT that required a re-training on any given task.
  They were pleased with this approach to documenting the proficiency in completing histology tasks.
  Hope this will help you!

  Can anyone out there is histoland tell me how they are meeting the proficiency testing program requirements for CAP inspections specifically with regards to histology..... I have spoken with CAP about the HistoQIP program and they consider that an educational program, not a proficiency program. Just wondering what other options are out there if any. Thanks for your responses in advance!
