Patient, carer and professional attitudes to implementing in vitro diagnostics in primary care

Attitudes to implementing ivds

Understanding the impact of in vitro diagnostics on patients, carers and clinicians is crucial in order to facilitate adoption of these tests. This theme of work involves exploring the experiences and perspectives of clinicians, parents and carers regarding point of care testing. We are currently carrying out qualitative research with different groups of clinicians and patients.
