ABOUT THE ROYAL BELGIAN SOCIETY OF
The Royal Belgian Society of Laboratory Medicine aims at representing and promoting the scientific and clinical interests of laboratory medicine in Belgium as well as clinical biology, biochemistry, hematology, microbiology and related new disciplines.
This Society was created in order to promote science and improve knowledge, guidelines, technical and medical innovations, standardization, quality, patient safety, theoretical and practical training in laborator medicine.
Our goal is to represent the profession as a single scientific reference group and as a group of experts with regard to the Belgian institute of Health (SCIENSANO), clinical laboratories, the medical-diagnostic and pharmaceutical sector and associations of general practitioners and medical specialists.
WHAT WE DO
We have a role of representing the Belgian clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine within the International and European Associations of Laboratory Medicine.
The RBSLM proposes and disseminates cutting-edge knowledge in this area via scientific conferences and educational initiatives, websites, social media and internet forums, subscriptions to professional scientific journals.
We also officially publish scientific papers and practical guidelines in the journal Acta Clinica Belgica, and we are active in international working groups of IFCC and EFLM and the editorial boards of these Societies’ official journals Clin Chim Acta and Clin Chem Lab Med.
