AACC CPOCT Point of Care Coordinators Forum

Competencies with Confidence: How to Creatively Coordinate, Collect, and be Consistently Compliant  

Date:     Thursday, July 28, 2022
Time:    7:30 am-10:00 am      

Competency assessment and documentation remain some of the most frequently cited areas during hospital surveys and inspections. Retirement and shrinking staff levels, along with the increased use of agency/traveling personnel make compliance with competency requirements even more difficult. This forum will cover the differences in accreditation agency requirements, the challenges in assessment for both manual and interfaced point-of-care tests and the uphill battle of documentation at the proper intervals. Creative solutions, strategies, and best practices will be shared to help improve your compliance consistently and how vendors can help!

Join us for the following presentations with a Q&A panel discussion to follow:
