Page last updated: 11 December 2019

The project aimed to add new material to the Lab Tests Online Australasia website with the emphasis on the important new area of genetic testing and eHealth support; it also extended its reach to educate consumers and healthcare professionals about key pathology tests for informed decision-making and best use of resources. Previously developed modules for the LTOAU website were extended in the areas of providing consumers with a graphic explanation of their pathology reports for a range of the most common tests and for genetics, where more tests will be added including in the area of inborn errors of metabolism. Video and animation were added to explain some important key tests, including: HbA1c HPV, and tumour markers so that consumers have a realistic understanding of test limitations to prevent over-ordering.
