Clinical Needs Assessment Survey
Copyright © 2009
NOTE: IF YOU HAVE ALREADY PARTICIPATED IN OUR NEEDS ASSESSMENT, PLEASE DO NOT RE-SUBMIT AN ADDITIONAL SURVEY.
“Point-of-Care Testing (POCT) is defined as diagnostic testing at or near the site of care.”
Thank you for participating in this needs assessment survey for the UC Davis-Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) Point-of-Care (POC) Technologies Center. The goal of this survey is to identify the clinical diagnostic needs for emergency and disaster care. Your participation will help develop new diagnostic devices to meet these needs at the point of care.
Established in 2007, the UC Davis-LLNL POC Technologies Center develops novel diagnostic devices, testing methods, and interpretive tools that will help eliminate health disparities by making predictive, preemptive, preventive, and personalized care accessible to all communities. Our Center is a National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) funded site.
The following survey is divided into three sections: 1) General Information, 2) Device Design, and 3) Pathogen Test Cluster Design. If there are any questions, or if you do not understand the instructions please contact us at any time for clarification. Please send any inquiries to (Ph: 530-752-4702, Fax: 530-752-4548, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Definitions. The following terms were used to describe device design and test cluster specifications:
a) test cassette collection, biological sample collection using a self-contained cartridge that interfaces directly with an analyzer; b) Vacutainer collection, biological sample collection using a Vacutainer; c) direct sampling, sample collection that requires no manipulation or transfer to another container for analysis; and d) coupled-direct sampling, direct sampling using a needle and hub coupled to a test cassette.
