Community Pharmacy-based Point-of-Care Testing Certificate Program


Point-of-care testing empowers clinicians to use effective, fast technology to aid their decision making at the “point-of-care” to improve patient health. Community pharmacy-based point-of-care testing utilizes CLIA-waived (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments -waived) tests that offer near immediate results in non-laboratory settings.  Pharmacies are increasingly offering this public health service to promote prevention, early detection, and disease management.
