Best Practices for Point-of-Care Implementation of COVID-19 Testing

During the Covid-19 pandemic, business as usual has been disrupted all over the world. Many things have had to change, and that includes within Point-of-Care Testing. We have invited several point-of-care experts to participate in a recorded discussion on the best practices that they have implemented in their own point of care testing programs.

From this recorded discussion, you will learn:

  • Best practices for point-of-care COVID-19 testing
  • Lessons learned from the POCT frontlines to plan for future pandemics
  • Training plans to address issues of changes in staffing during disasters

The discussion is facilitated by Peggy Mann, MS, MT(ASCP) and Kathleen David, MT(ASCP). Peggy is the Ambulatory POC Coordinator & Program Manager at the University of Texas Medical Branch, and she is the chairholder of CLSI’s Expert Panel on Point-of-Care Testing.
