Interest in Near Patient Testing (NPT) continues to gain momentum as it has a major role to play in redesigning services around the needs of the patient.
Robyn Meurant will participate in the Near Patient Testing working group on November 14, as it aims to understand the current market for near-patient testing and identify the challenges that are likely to impair progress in this exciting area.
The group has recently published a document highlighting the value of near-patient testing and the significant benefits of wider adoption to patient outcomes.
