ASCP Negotiation & Advocacy Toolbox
A roadmap to advocating for the needs of your laboratory
To advocate for your laboratory and staffing needs, demonstration of the laboratory’s value to the overall healthcare system and patient care is critical. Developing a structured laboratory strategic plan can help outline and operationalize the core pillars needed to demonstrate value of the laboratory.
Pillar 1: Promoting Laboratory Visibility
Outlay a plan for communications to promote visibility of the laboratory and gain stakeholder buy-in and interest in the laboratory.
Pillar 2: People and Culture
Be the best place to work in pathology and laboratory medicine by cultivating diverse life-long learners and engaging and guiding the next generation of laboratory leaders, supervisors, managers, and MLS to build a culture of patient focused lab advocates.
Pillar 3: Quality
Pillar 4: Financials
Pillar 5: Service & Growth
