Technicians who earn the Point-of-Care Testing Certificate demonstrate their ability to take on point-of-care testing responsibilities in the pharmacy. With nearly all of the US population living within 5 miles of a pharmacy, conducting point-of-care testing at these locations is an essential component of public health and community safety—and one in which pharmacy technicians in many states play a vital role.
Earn the Point-of-Care Testing Certificate to demonstrate your competency in:
- Conducting point-of-care tests, including carefully screening patients, administering tests, collecting specimens, and reading and recording test results
- Knowledge of CLIA-waived point-of-care tests
- Understanding of the safe and accurate processes involved with point-of-care testing
