Embedding Sustainability in Laboratory Practice


It has become apparent that the climate crisis is reaching critical levels and Governments and key organisations are recognising the need for change. 

A review of current literature reveals very little published research concerning the impact of clinical laboratory practice on the carbon footprint of healthcare. For a clinical laboratory to be-come more environmentally sound, key target areas of focus are required. With sustainability becoming a key consideration for course development, employing educational principles such as Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in the form of Sustainability in quality improvement (SusQI), Quality Improvement objectives can be met while benefitting the patient and the environmental impact of organisation.
