Latest News from the CAP
Testing Hot Topics & Moving Forward in 2022
The College of American Pathologists (CAP) hosts the fourth in a series of 2021 virtual media briefings featuring leading pathologists—the physicians who biopsy and diagnose disease. As the COVID-19 pandemic is well into its second full year, experts will tackle the continued challenges of COVID-19 testing, the emergence of new variants, international testing mandates, the importance of vaccines, boosters, hospital staffing shortages both in and outside the laboratory, and guarding against medical misinformation. Pathologists will also discuss a dramatic rise in the number of cancer diagnoses and severity of those cancers in the U-S population, a change in the way pathologists test for kidney disease so as to eliminate racial inequity, and the severe shortage of forensic pathologists.
