Accepting that standardizing and harmonizing laboratory practice has considerable value within laboratory medicine, including within the field of hemostasis, this paper concentrates on some recent and important initiatives in harmonizing hemostasis practice. Harmonization of hemostasis practice to improve clinical diagnosis and management is best driven by evidence and, in the absence of evidence, by consensus and expert opinion. To such end, there are various groups involved in such initiatives, and recent initiatives by these groups are highlighted in this review.
