Hi Colleagues ,

I just thought you  maybe  interested in  this website-very  useful for
health /medical professionals , students etc ..

http://www.labtestsonline.org.au/

labtestsonline.org.au - online independent pathology resource

labtestsonline.org.au is a free, non-commercial website providing
independent information about pathology testing. 

It attracts about 88,000 visits a month from the public, medical
professionals and students. (See breakdown below.)

Information is prepared by pathologists and scientists working in
pathology laboratories and reviewed by an editorial board.

Topics include: pathology tests, diseases and clinical conditions,
appropriate screening for disease, and specimen collection and
processing, as well a general overview of pathology laboratories, the
way they work and the people who work in them.

Recent nationwide research has highlighted that medical and health
professionals (doctors, nurses, practice managers, pathology staff and
others) are finding the site useful as an instantly-accessible,
easy-to-understand, yet authoritative, accurate and up-to-date pathology
resource. Students also emerged as a key user group.

* Patients and carers - 49 per cent 
* Doctors and health professionals - 32 per cent 
* Students and other researchers- 19 per cent

The website has been developed by the Australasian Association of
Clinical Biochemists (AACB) with support from the Royal College of
Pathologists of Australasia (RCPA) to address a perceived paucity of
trustworthy, impartial internet information on pathology suitable for a
general audience. It has been funded under the Quality Use of Pathology
Program of the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing.

An app is under development and due for release in the second half of
2012.

The site is accredited by and complies with the international standards
of the Health On the Net (HON) foundation. labtestsonline.org.au is part
of an international network of similar sites. There are now 17 sites
world-wide in 14 languages. 

Members of the labtestsonline.org.au management and editorial boards can
be available to speak to groups. Support material can be provided.
