Webinar: Addressing the Laboratory Staffing Crisis—Expert Strategies to Recruit and Retain a Stronger Workforce

"Long before the pandemic, clinical laboratories were understaffed and tasked with an ever-increasing amount of demands as the industry shifted to a value-based care model. Now faced with the uncertainty of COVID-19 surges demanding more of an already strained system, recruiting and retaining staff has become harder than ever. These staffing challenges are due to a complex mix of burnouts, retirements, career changes, lack of qualified personnel, and other economic factors, but one issue remains clear—the clinical laboratory labor shortage has reached critical levels, and labs need to find better strategies to build and retain a stronger workforce. In this webinar, ARUP’s human resources and recruiting experts will discuss industry trends, successful strategies for recruiting the necessary staff to meet increased workloads, and creative tactics to retain and motivate current staff. Our experts will also answer questions from the webinar registrants to provide additional solutions on recruiting and retention."

Webinar: Navigate the technology landscape in predictive genomics: An introduction to key technology concepts and strategies

"Predictive genomics is a powerful capability to help predict disease risk and understand drug response in order to improve health outcomes and manage costs. This presentation will provide an overview of genome-wide sequencing and genotyping strategies for predictive genomics research. We will introduce three key whole-genome technologies: whole genome sequencing (WGS), low-pass sequencing (LPS) and genome-wide AxiomTM microarrays, and discuss how they can be integrated into technology strategies across various applications of predictive genomics research."

Webinar: Infused Products Virtual Conference

"This complimentary virtual conference consists of 4 back-to-back webinars, all on the same day.

In a number of states across the country, edibles, topicals, beverages and other infused products are taking up a larger percentage of the market share. They come in all shapes and sizes- from granola bars to lotions, lubricant and scented candles; manufacturers are infusing a wide variety of products with cannabis, creating a market that meets a larger consumer demographic.

Different states have different rules when it comes to product safety. Some states require ServSafe training and local health inspections, while others have more stringent lab testing rules, require documented GMPs and even a form of certification demonstrating proper food safety protocols.

State regulations shouldn’t be the reason why infused products manufacturers have robust safety and quality standards, consumer safety is. Getting ahead of regulations with proactive safety and quality planning can improve a business’s bottom line tremendously. There are a number of tools and tricks cannabis companies can learn from the food industry to streamline their businesses and gain a bigger chunk of the market share."

Webinar: PFASsive: A Diffusion-Based Passive Sampler

"Per-and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) have emerged as a concern at many sites as they are persistent, bioaccumulative, and have demonstrated toxicity in laboratory animals, therefore it is a critical need to understand their migration pathways and bioavailability for proper delineation and risk characterization. Although there are established grab sampling techniques available for PFAS, these capture the total concentration which may result in an overestimation of risk to human and ecological receptors. Passive sampling in sediment porewater and surface water is an accepted approach to assess bioavailability and risk through the dissolved phase of many known contaminants (i.e., PCBs, PAHs, pesticides, metals etc.). Given their partially water-soluble nature, a diffusion-based passive sampler is a good candidate for quantification of dissolved PFAS. This presentation will highlight both targeted and non-targeted results from in situ field testing of a novel passive sampler, SPFASsive, and compare these results with those obtained from traditional grab sampling."

Webinar: New Tactics for Hiring Traditional and Specialized Clinical Laboratory Roles

"There’s a dire need to fill clinical laboratory and pathology-related roles from only a small pool of correctly qualified individuals in many instances, according to experts. Several causes underlie the current abundance of open and unfilled medical lab and pathology positions, including credentialing questions and unmet needs in emerging skillsets as a result of the healthcare industry’s steps to modernize and digitalize.

For clinical labs and anatomical and clinical pathology group directors looking to fill open, high-demand positions, it may be time to take action beyond just beefing up salaries. A new webinar, brought to you by Dark Daily, will bring constructive strategies for dealing with the labor shortage problem in the lab industry.

The free, 60-minute webinar (with live Q&A) will feature recruiting and hiring experts from Lighthouse Lab Services, a firm that specializes in recruiting, consulting, and lab development and management for both start-up and existing laboratories."

For this reason, effective safety planning is a valuable tool in maintaining a productive workplace.

This presentation will identify key tools and methods that lab managers can use to both prevent and respond to unexpected events in their lab work. Learn how to recognize lab hazards before they create a disaster, and develop a plan that will help you avoid them. Determine the most effective ways to respond to a lab accident—before the accident happens—in order to safeguard the people and science in your lab."
