CAMP PODS is a webinar series consisting of 10 sessions, one-hour in length, which will take place on the first Thursday of each month.
The goal of this series is to build a strong Oncology Laboratory Medicine community, where best practices and common challenges can be discussed. Insights gained will be key to implement across Canada and will help streamline laboratory workflows and practice for laboratory medicine, the end result of which will be improvements in the patient journey.
