President's Message

It gives me great pleasure to greet you all as the President of the College of Pathologist of Sri Lanka 2019. I consider it an honour and a privilege to be elected as the President of the College and I take this opportunity to thank the members for their trust placed on me to lead the College for 2019. I pledge to give my best to uplift the field of Pathology in the country and to continue the good work already commenced by the previous councils and to commence some more new activities.

Dear Members, this year's theme of the College activities is "Fast expanding landscape of the Pathologist; meeting the Challenge". We have planned our activities for this year as our attempts to meet this challenge.

Every year, the CPSL organizes workshops and academic sessions to help in updating pathologists with the current advances in the field. The biannual international conference; the  ICON 2019 will be held in August 2019, for the 7th time and it will be on Lymphoid, Dermatopathology and cytopathology.

 It has been found that >70% of diagnoses made, rely on laboratory results. It emphasizes the crucial role the pathologists play in patient care. Although sustaining high ethical standards remains crucial in both clinical and laboratory practice, laboratory ethics does not receive the attention it deserves. Ethical dilemmas are faced daily by Pathologists. I wish to address this issue together with the membership in order to develop protocols and guidelines to ensure best ethical  histopathology laboratory practice in the country.

 The Council 2018 commenced the pilot project on external quality assurance in immunohistochemistry. The Council 2019 will continue the efforts of the College in assuring the quality of immunohistochemistry laboratory services in the state sector. Workshops are planned to be held addressing the technical issues to improve the quality of immunohistochemistry laboratory services.

Apart from these key events there will be many educational programmes organized aiming trainees and practicing pathologists during the year 2019.

I earnestly request your fullest cooperation to ensure the success of these activities and uplift the histopathology services to improve patient care.

I wish you all success in your academic and professional activities!

 Thank you.

Lakmini Mudduwa

President CPSL 2019
