Abstract: A poster presentation regarding haemoglobin point-of-care testing. Introduction: This study seeks to evaluate the efficacy of point-of-care testing (POCT) in the monitoring of haemoglobin (Hb) in patients suffering from chronic diseases such as diabetes and chronic kidney disease (CKD), using two devices namely StatSite M Hgb and Diaspect Tm. Aims: • To determine and compare performance characteristics of the two Hb POCT devices against standard laboratory testing • To evaluate patients’ and pharmacists’ perception on introducing this service in a community pharmacy.
