Educational Needs Addressed
As health care institutions and their corresponding laboratories begin to widely roll out the 4th generation HIV tests, there will be clinician gaps in knowledge about the new test and how it differs from previous generation tests in terms of a number of characteristics, including: how it detects HIV, test sensitivity, time it takes to run the test after sample collection, time it takes to detect HIV, ability to detect acute HIV. These gaps in knowledge can have implications for patient follow up and re-screening, thus creating potential gaps in performance.
