Directing or coordinating a POCT program requires a distinct set of competencies. Laboratorians must consider the unique challenges a point-of-care environment offers, be aware of the regulatory requirements that govern the use of certain POC tests, and know the advantages and limitations of POCT technologies.

After attending this 60-minute program, viewers will be able to:

  • Define point of care testing
  • Describe the impact of POCT on patient care
  • Differentiate between waived and non-waived testing requirements
  • Describe how to evaluate and monitor the quality of POCT results
  • List considerations when evaluating a request for a new POC test
