When it comes to Point-of-Care Testing, there's one thing you can always count on...and that's change. And that change holds true for occult blood testing, compliance education and connectivity for POCT. There are more vendors, more choices, and often times, more confusion around who does what and how.

At the June 16 meeting of the Virginia POC Coordinators at Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg, we will do our best to clear up some of the confusion by offering insightful talks followed by roundtable discussions on these key areas.





10:00am Welcome/Ice Breaker


New Developments in Occult Blood Testing

The main use for the fecal occult blood test (FOBT) or the fecal immunochemical test (FIT) is as a screen for early colon cancer. Most cases of colon cancer begin with the development of benign intestinal polyps.
