Cervical Screening Update 5- A New Era 20-03-2017

Changes to the cervical screening program planned for May 1, have been delayed until December 1, 2017. 

It is important that women due for cervical screening continue to be tested using a cytology-based Pap test.

From now until November 30, 2017, GynaePath will continue to offer high-quality, Medicare rebatable, Pap smear testing.

New Guidance for Assessment of Lipid Status 15-12-2016

Non-fasting specimens are now acceptable.

Fasting specimens have traditionally been used for the formal assessment of lipid status (total, LDL and HDL cholesterol and triglycerides). In 2016, the European Atherosclerosis Society and the European Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine released a joint consensus statement that recommends the routine use of non-fasting specimens for the assessment of lipid status. Large population-based studies were reviewed which showed that for most subjects the changes in plasma lipids and lipoproteins values following food intake were not clinically significant.
