Identify Point of Care Test (POCT) options for common STIs.
Demonstrate proper techniques in the use of selected POCTs for STIs.
Professional Practice Gap and Knowledge is in identifying what current FDA approved POCTs for STDs are available and how to perform these tests. Our activity will address the need by introducing current POCTs for STDs that are currently available, demonstrating how selected POCTs for STDs are performed and having participants identifying various unknowns correctly, using selected POCTs under laboratory supervision. There will be a lab consultant that will be assisting participants in properly identifying the unknown specimens.
