Point-of-Care Testing is ideally suited to resource limited settings: it can bring testing to the patient in the field as well as enable reliable laboratory testing in an environment lacking the complicated hospital infrastructure. However, it is vulnerable to the same problems that plague all laboratory tests. The presenters will discuss the particular challenges they faced and some of the resolutions they developed.

The Webinar will consist of three talks (20 minutes each) and will be followed by the panel discussion - Registrants will be able to ask questions to the presenters.

Talk 1: POCT- coming of age in COVID-19 pandemic

Speaker: Dr. Sohini Sengupta

Talk 2: TheStatus of Point-of-Care Testing in Vietnam

Speaker: Dr. Chi Loan Thuy Nguyen

Talk 3: Formulating and Utilising the 6R tool for effective error prevention at POCT sites in Africa

Speaker: Prof. Rajiv T Erasmus

Chair: Dr. Adil I. Khan, Chair of the IFCC C-POCT.
