Please join us this week in celebrating medical laboratory professionals!
Medical laboratory professionals are highly trained health care professionals who provide laboratory test results required for the prevention, detection and treatment of illness and disease. When physicians and other health care providers are looking for answers, they depend on laboratory test results to accurately diagnose and treat illness and monitor patient health.
According to the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science, the medical laboratory profession, as a group, is the fourth largest health care profession in Canada, and medical laboratory professionals generate over 440 million test results each year.
"The BCGEU is proud to represent hundreds of lab workers across the province," said Stephanie Smith, BCGEU President. "These dedicated, highly-trained professionals play a critical role in our health care system and this week is a perfect opportunity to say thank you to all of them for delivering vital services that British Columbians rely on."
