Template questions for blood test progress updates

To monitor your progress against the recently updated NCCN Guidelines and ELNet Recommendations5, consider asking your doctor, haematologist or oncologist the following questions:
  • Are my blood samples sent to a specialist lab for testing by q-PCR?

  • Does this lab report the results according to the IS?

  • If not, how sensitive is their q-PCR method?

  • Has the lab calculated an IS conversion factor?

  • Can my results be converted to the IS?

  • If not, how can I be sure my response is meeting the updated ELNet Recommendations or NCCN Guidelines?

  • Can you provide a printed copy of my lab report?
