HORIBA CONNECT – Enabling Better Haematology and Point of Care Diagnosis

HORIBA UK organises a webinar series on haematology and point-of-care. The sessions will be held on 29th and 31st of March and will offer participants the opportunity to discuss how to enable better diagnosis in haematology and point of care.

Day 1 is dedicated to quality control and a number of interesting haematology cases.

On day 2, the guest speakers will discuss the use of point-of-care instruments in busy departments and in the community. They will also discuss how point-of-care can improve patients pathways in acute and secondary care, and what are the key elements for an effective point-of-care governance.
