In 2014, the ASC-ASCP Workgroup for Emerging Roles in Cytopathology, a collaboration between ASCP and the American Society of Cytopathology, was created to develop concrete goals towards addressing evolving practice changes while ensuring that education, practice and trending data support the cytotechnology profession’s longevity and livelihood. The collaborative work of this group is being highlighted in three articles, which will be simultaneously published in both Lab Medicine and Journal of the American Society of Cytopathology and available via an early online release on July 1.
The three articles listed below will inform how the practice is changing, what practicing cytotechnologists need to meet the future and how professional organizations are developing meaningful tools and resources to meet the expressed needs.
- Changing Practice Patterns for Cytotechnologists: A Comparative Analysis of Data From the 2009 and 2015 ASCP BOC Practice Analysis Surveys
- Perspectives on Expanded Scope of Practice in Cytotechnology
- Voices from the Field: Supporting Expanded Educational Needs of Cytotechnologists
