Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


There are a number of key stakeholders involved in the day-to-day operation of point-of-care testing (POCT) in primary care and hospital settings. Depending on the size/scope of the POCT program, stakeholders may include: the doctor actively managing the patient based on the POCT result; the POCT Coordinator or Regional Supervisor responsible for the organisation and management of POCT services at the network/regional level; the POCT operator who performs the POC test in situ; the patient, who is the consumer of the POCT service; and the industry partner who provided the POCT device and consumables for testing. This chapter provides a brief personal perspective from a representative of each of these stakeholders.
