La sfida del riconoscimento del professionista in Medicina di Laboratorio in Europa: gli strumenti a disposizione per aumentarne la visibilità e la qualità
The challenge of recognising Laboratory Medicine professionals in Europe: available tools to increase their expertise and visibility

<p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;<span style="font-size:9.0pt">Laboratory Medicine is essential in all steps of patient care and to maintain and improve its value, promoting its recognition and visibility is vital, but such endeavor is hampered by a lack of harmonization across the European Union (EU). Specialists have different names, pre-graduate education, legal status and specialist training. Thanks to the European Directive 2013/55/EU, automatic recognition of a profession is possible if one third of EU nations agree on the adoption of a &ldquo;Common Training Framework&rsquo;&rsquo; (CTF), which defines the common set of knowledge, skills and competences needed to pursue a profession. The EFLM Syllabus was used as a base upon which to build the CTF regarding specialist training, along with EFLM&rsquo;s Equivalence of Standards (EoS) for pre- and post-specialty requirements. Professionals who trained following the Syllabus and meet EFLM&rsquo;s EoS can be added to the EFLM&rsquo;s European Register of Specialists in Laboratory Medicine. Standardization of specialist training is required to improve the quality of our profession and will allow specialists to work in different countries more easily. This is further facilitated by the EFLMLabX platform. The adoption of the CTF, the continuous harmonization process, the EFLM&rsquo;s Register and its available tools to improve specialists&rsquo; skills and competences will increase the visibility of our profession, facilitating its recognition process by the European Parliament. This undertaking is not only needed for the recognition of our profession, but to also improve its quality across all European countries, which will positively reflect on patient care.</span></p>
