Description:

Point-of-care testing (POCT) is diagnostic testing performed outside a central laboratory environment, typically at or near the patient’s bedside. Traditionally, POCT used to be performed only in hospitals. However, this paradigm is changing with the introduction of more extensive healthcare services in patient homes, mobile health care units, community pharmacies, and other settings. This webcast course will: 1) briefly review requirements for high-quality POCT programs; 2) discuss strategies for achieving the aforementioned requirements in non-traditional healthcare settings, with particular emphasis on the role of the laboratory professional; and 3) provide examples of non-traditional healthcare programs that have successfully implemented high quality POCT, including Canada’s first stroke ambulance and a Hospital-at-Home-type program.
