Completing Laboratory Requisition Forms

How to Identify Data, Obtain Key Information, and Complete Laboratory Requisition Forms

Have you ever asked yourself:

  • What is the meaning of all of the fields on lab requisition forms?
  • What data do I need to provide on lab requisition forms?
  • Where does the information come from?
  • How do I obtain the information necessary to complete lab requisition forms?

If you seek answers to these questions, then this course is for you.

Don't Worry. This course is not about learning the ENTIRE subject of laboratory testing. Instead, this course targets one specific skill that many beginning students find challenging—completing lab requisition forms.

In this course, you will learn about the purpose and importance of laboratory requisition forms, recognize the three main categories of information on most lab requisition forms, and identify the use of the form fields. You will also discover how to obtain key information from various sources and use the data to complete laboratory requisition forms.
