International BLS DAY 15 April, 2014
This day is for the promotion and celebration of the key role Biomedical Laboratory Scientists have in diagnosis and treatment of patients. The theme for the day is selected by the IFBLS Board of Directors and is related to health issues and support the WHO Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s). BLS Day is an opportunity to promote public awareness of the theme and the contributions made by the profession as it relates to health care. The theme for 2014 is "Ethics"
Biomedical Laboratory Scientists are one of the largest groups of health-care professionals, yet our role in medicine is poorly understood. Patients, families and even colleagues within health care have a poor understanding of the vital role Biomedical Scientists have in medicine and public health. The best person to promote our profession is a confident Biomedical Laboratory Scientist. We are the experts and understand our role in healthcare and are the best to carry our message.
