Pathology Decision Support Tools

The Pathology Decision Support Tools (PDSTs) in this section of The Manual have been developed to assist requestors with clinical scenarios that are either commonly encountered or complex. They provide stepwise visual decision ‘trees’ with additional clinical information alongside. Please see How to Use this Manual for more details on the PDSTs. A further project, currently being funded by the Australian Government Department of Health, aims to improve the integration of pathology decision support electronically into requestors’ work flow. The intention is to further update this section of The Manual once this project is complete.
