Competency Assessment Guide and Forms

Regular assessments of the competency of POC EID device Operators are crucial for ensuring the quality of the testing procedure at an individual level, and can also serve as a key component of a POC EID quality assurance (QA) scheme.

Particularly in the early stages of device operation, Operator assessments will provide further assurance of the quality of testing as well as the competency of health workers to adequately perform POC EID testing.

These assessments also have the potential to limit the number of errors resulting from Operator operations. Furthermore, competency assessments can promote professional development of site level staff as well as confidence among the MOH and partners in the overall quality of POC EID testing.
