The Wiley Award Address and the presentations from the Wiley Award Symposium
Held at Anaheim, CA on 17 September 2007
Wiley Award Address: Optimised Scoring in Proficiency Tests
The AOAC International Wiley Award was given to Professor Michael Thompson this year. He gave the presentation at the AOAC Annual International meeting.
His presentation was followed by the Wiley Award Symposium in which there were short addresses by speakers concerned with proficiency testing from the point of view of the provider, accreditation agency, consultant, major manufacturer buying in analytical services and the consultant laboratory.
This was followed by an extensive round-table where issues such as the change in role of proficiency testing from being a mechanism to help analytical laboratories to becoming a pseudo qualification in its own right were discussed.
