A research protocol for developing a Point-Of-Care Key Evidence Tool 'POCKET': a checklist for multidimensional evidence reporting on point-of-care in vitro diagnostics.

Huddy JR, Ni M, Mavroveli S, Barlow J, Williams DA, Hanna GB - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Point-of-care in vitro diagnostics (POC-IVD) are increasingly becoming widespread as an acceptable means of providing rapid diagnostic results to facilitate decision-making in many clinical pathways.Evidence in utility, usability and cost-effectiveness is currently provided in a fragmented and detached manner that is fraught with methodological challenges given the disruptive nature these tests have on the clinical pathway.The Imperial College Joint Research Compliance Office and the Imperial College Hospitals NHS Trust R&D department have approved the protocol.

BMJOPEN2015007840F1: Study outline.

Mentions: The POCKET checklist will be developed and refined by a multimethod approach utilising stakeholders in the POC-IVD field and experts in methodology. The study design is outlined in figure 1. A semistructured interview study will identify emergent themes to guide a Delphi study that will generate an expert consensus on tool inclusion. This will be presented at a workshop to develop the initial draft tool that will be refined and validated by a series of case studies to field-test the tool.
