Why is it important?

Exciting news includes the launch of LASA’s Direct Observation of Procedural/Practical Skills (DOPS) resource thanks to the kind donation of a considerable number of existing DOPS by three of LASA’s ETES members, LASA is pleased to be able to announce the launch of this resource, containing 250 DOPS sheets for procedural and practical skills, planned for July 2019. Visit the website http://www.lasa.co.uk/ and click on the DOPS link


I hope this article gives researchers and all those involved in the biomedical sector easy access to an extensive database of techniques and protocols to assist with assessing competency in the workplace. LASA hopes that trainers and Named Training and Competency Officers will make full use of this resource and help it to grow. Your feedback is welcome so if you have any comments or suggestions please email DOPS@lasa.co.uk
