Research Biography

Lauren Duckworth is the Manager of the Northern Territory (NT) Point-of-Care Testing (POCT) Program at the Flinders University International Centre for Point-of-Care Testing.

Lauren has a Bachelor of Medical Science and a Bachelor of Science (Honours) from Flinders University and has been working in the POCT field for 9 years. She specialises in POC pathology testing research for rural and remote communities, specifically in the NT. Lauren’s interest in this area stemmed from her travels around Australia where she observed the challenges surrounding inequity of healthcare access faced by remote communities.

The NT POCT Program is a well-established field program that supports quality-assured POCT on the Abbott i-STAT and HemoCue WBC DIFF devices for the care of patients with acute and chronic health conditions. The NT POCT Program supports nearly 100 i-STAT devices in remote health centres across the NT, the Ngaanyatjarra Lands and the Kimberley region of Western Australia, and 20 WBC DIFF devices in the Top End of the NT.

Lauren and the rest of the NT POCT team won the 2021 Engagement Australia Excellence Award for Outstanding Engagement for Research Impact.
