Webinar: Insights from User Discussions on COVID-19 Testing in Non-Traditional Settings - Webinar: Insights from User Discussions on COVID-19 Testing in Non-Traditional Settings - POCTRN
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADxsm) initiative was formed to accelerate the development, validation, and commercialization of innovative point-of-care and home-based tests, as well as improvements to clinical laboratory tests, that can directly detect SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
Webinar: Insights from User Discussions on COVID-19 Testing in Non-Traditional Settings
A Northwestern team led by Kara Palamountain will be presenting preliminary findings and takeaways on the topic of user needs and opportunities for COVID-19 testing based on more than 25 discussions with potential organizational and home users. These discussions included qualitative inquiries of user goals, concerns, and contextual factors for COVID-19 testing alongside feedback sessions on hypothetical products. The insights generated from these discussions can inform product developers and process planners as they work to create tests and procedures that are suitable for different user groups.
