Summary

Clinicians and laboratory professionals are encouraged to join this expert discussion for a clinical and scientific update on COVID-19 variants, infections, and post-COVID
conditions - known as “Long COVID”. Investigators and clinical experts will share updates on their research and seminal studies using rapid testing. Clinical and epidemiological perspectives on the value of accessible rapid testing for timely isolation and appropriate treatment, including antibiotic stewardship, will also be presented.

Learning Objectives

  • Examine the latest testing guidelines for symptomatic and asymptomatic populations across acute and community settings
  • Provide an update on variants, infections and post-COVID conditions
  • Discuss recent data on the role of rapid testing in streamlining isolation and mitigating new infections
