Point of Care Testing in General Practice: A Business Case webinar
Thursday 06 February 2020, 12:30pm - 01:30pm

Country SA PHN, in conjunction with Brentnalls SA and APPN, are proud to be able to provide a webinar explaining the ins and outs of implementing PoCT in a General Practice and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service setting from a business point of view. 

One of the key challenges faced by patients and health providers in regional and remote areas of Australia is the turnaround time usually required to access test results that are often the key to the treatment and management of illnesses.   PoCT provides a range of evidence supported tools for day to day use by General Practitioners to improve the timeliness and quality of care to their patient cohort including assisting antibiotic prescribing.    
This webinar, based on the recently launched ‘Point of Care Testing in General Practice: Business Case Report’ and supporting ‘Point of Care Testing Analysis Tool (PoCTAT)’, is a practical look at embedding PoCT in everyday practice, covering all aspect from quality control and consumable costs to staff time.
