Clinical Practice Section
The ACB Clinical Practice Section aims to inform the healthcare community of the essential relevance of clinical biochemistry and its value to patient management, and of direct patient care being provided by Chemical Pathologists. The section also strives to encourage best clinical practice within the profession, supporting moves towards national harmonisation.
The Training, Education and Academic Development Division promotes training in clinical aspects for all clinical biochemistry trainees. It considers how best to integrate clinical biochemistry into modern medical training. It also works to enhance the relevance of ACB training courses for medical trainees.
The Professional Affairs Division acts as a focus for professional support for medical members of the ACB and proposes candidates for National Clinical Excellence Awards.
Membership of the CPS is open to all ACB members: medical graduates joining the ACB automatically become members. There is strong regional representation on the section’s steering group, which occasionally meets.
Clinical Practice Discussion Group
The ACB supports an active clinical practice email discussion list hosted by Jiscmail (formerly Mailbase). Members are welcome to join this list and participate in the latest debates. The archives of past discussions can also be accessed online.
