National Standard of Excellence in POCT
Due to speed and convenience, an increasing percentage of testing is being conducted at the point of care in hospitals, GP practices, high street pharmacies and other community settings.
The ePoCT e-learning program provides the theoretical training to help ensure that all testing, wherever it is done, is carried out to appropriate and consistent standards, as have been established in hospital laboratories, to ensure quality of care and patient safety.
ePoCT provides a comprehensive resource intended to complement and enhance existing practical PoCT user training programs, many of which are provided by suppliers of PoCT systems.
