WONCA is the World Organization of Family Doctors representing over 400,000 family doctors from 126 member organisations in 102 countries.
WONCA’s mission is to improve the quality of life of the world’s peoples by fostering high standards of care in general practice/family medicine.
Our Centre has been appointed as the Secretariat for the WONCA Special Interest Group on Global Point-of-Care Testing, which was launched in 2013. Its aims are to:
The WONCA Special Interest Group (SIG) on Point of Care Testing was approved by World Council at last year’s meeting in Prague. Read a report of their latest workshop, held by the SIG at the WONCA Asia Pacific Region conference in Kuching, Malaysia.
A short online survey on point-of-care testing has been developed by the SIG. The purpose of this survey is to obtain a wide understanding of the clinical use, availability, needs, advantages, and limitations or barriers to the implementation of point-of-care testing across all WONCA regions of the world.
This information will inform the Special Interest Group on priorities for education and research. We welcome responses from all family doctors and health professional staff with an interest in point-of-care testing.
