We would like to request participation of ALL Canadian laboratories in this
survey. Even if you are not currently testing for PD-L1, please continue to
read. This survey is designed by the Canadian Immunohistochemistry Quality
Control scheme (cIQc) to understand: 

         i.          The challenges that laboratories face in introducing
PD-L1 testing, 

       ii.          The overall landscape in predictive biomarker
development in clinical IHC laboratories. 


Click on   <https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/P2XTCN8>
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/P2XTCN8  to start the survey.


The information we receive from this survey will help cIQc develop  a
fit-for-purpose proficiency testing program and improve our ability to
assist laboratories.


The target participants for this survey are pathologists, laboratory
scientists/technologists,  researchers, and also oncologists  if they are
actively involved in predictive biomarker development. Therefore, please
feel free to forward  the survey link below to your oncologist colleagues,
especially if they work in close collaboration with you on new test


We would like to emphasize that this survey is open both to those who
currently test for PD-L1 and those who do not. Feedback from both groups is
important to us. 


Your participation in this survey is completely anonymous and none of the
responses will be connected to identifying information and the results will
be disseminated in aggregate form through cIQc. If the results are such that
we believe they may be of interest to the national/international community,
then we will also attempt to submit for publication in a peer-reviewed


The survey will take 8 - 10 minutes to complete.

The survey closes September 15th 2018
