AACC audioconferences.

AACC offers a series of four audioconferences, "New Approaches to Point-of-Care Testing" (POCT), in January and February, 1997. Funded by the AACC's philanthropic arm, the Van Slyke Society, the series is made possible by a grant from i-STAT Corporation.

The POCT audioconference series is based on AACC's highest-rated conference of 1996: "Taking Charge of Point-of-Care Testing." Topics and dates for the series are: Expanding and optimizing your POCT program: January 7, 1997; POCT vs rapid test response: January 28, 1997; Economics and outcomes of POCT: February 11, 1997; and POCT regulations and inspection: February 25, 1997.

Paula Santrach, MD, Co-Director of Hospital Clinical Laboratories and Consultant, Transfusion Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, will conduct the January 7 session. Petrie Rainey, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Laboratory Medicine, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut, will lead the January 28 session. The Economics & Outcomes of POCT will be conducted on February 11 by K. Michael Parker, PhD. Sharon Ehrmeyer, PhD, Director of the Medical Technology Program, and Ronald Laessig, PhD, Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, both at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wisconsin, will talk on POCT Regulations & Inspections.

Extended question and answer periods will follow each session. Each site will receive a set of slides and a hard copy of each presentation and reference materials.

The charge for all four POCT audioconferences is $299. Individual topic POCT audioconferences are $89 per site. A late charge of $26 will be applied to all POCT registrations received less than 7 business days prior to the program(s). To register, contact the AACC Meetings Department at 202-857-0717 or 800-892-1400 ext. 732 (phone) or 202-887-5093 (fax).
