This highly attended educational event is held the last day of the AACC national annual meeting and supported by CPOCT Division though generous industry sponsorship which allows for nominal cost to participants. A fantastic team has been very busy organizing the event for this year, which will focus on The Role of Point-of-Care Testing in a Disaster (Plan). The session features a Medical Technologist Health Services Officer who is involved in an array of missions related to disaster and emergency response, including:

  • An example of a Community based cooperative plan
  • A hospital based plan
  • A discussion of a guidance document under development

More details and registration information will be coming soon. Be sure to visit the CPOCT Division and Annual Meeting web pages for more.
