HIV Point of Care Testing Training: Pre-course Online Learning
HIV Point of Care tests (PoCT) refer to rapid screening tests done outside of the traditional laboratory setting. They are also referred to as ‘rapid tests’. PoCT is available at sites across Australia.
ASHM maintains a national curriculum on PoCT which can be used by health professionals and community agency staff to educate test operators on practical issues around:
- Test operation
- Particulars on how to deliver a result
- Details about the necessary elements of operating a PoCT site effectively
This curriculum was funded through a grant from NSW Health, and run by ASHM with collaboration with St Vincent’s AMR.
