Point-of-Care Testing for Infectious Diseases Webinar

Tuesday, March 10, 2020 | 1:00-2:00 PM Eastern (US) Time

Learn about CLSI’s POCT15 report that provides recommendations for assisting providers, laboratories, public health agencies, and policymakers in assessing, deploying, performing, and utilizing point of care testing (POCT) to improve the management of infectious disease. Also learn about recommendations for indications, limitations, appropriate use, and result reporting and interpretation.

In addition, a summary of potential uses of POCT 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 POCT to improve patient care.

This course will cover the following:

  • An overview of POCT15
  • Technology summary
  • Discussion by pathogen
  • Other health care⎯associated community pathogens of importance
  • Procalcitonin
