Also learn about recommendations for indications, limitations, appropriate use, and result reporting and interpretation.
In addition, a summary of potential uses of POC tests in community outreach and public health testing, and in resource-limited settings, is also presented. POCT15 provides guidance and aid to laboratory and non-laboratory workers using POC tests to improve patient care.
This course will cover the following:
