Evaluating rapid flu tests in outpatient settings

OSHA Healthcare Connection, August 19, 2008

The Joint Commission and the CDC are sponsoring a study to assess how rapid tests for influenza are used in outpatient medical settings, such as community health centers, solo and group practice physician offices, and hospital emergency departments.

An online collaborative forum has been developed as part of the project. Outpatient medical care providers, laboratory professionals, and others interested in the topic of rapid influenza testing are encouraged to utilize the forum. Click here to access the forum.
