Target Audience
This activity is intended for physicians, virology technicians, technologists, laboratory supervisors, laboratory directors, and other healthcare professionals with an interest in diagnostic molecular biology.

Educational Objectives
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
1. Implement appropriate proficiency testing programs to ensure the quality and accuracy of molecular diagnostic tests for viral diseases.
2. Describe how clinical and public health laboratories can better partner to prepare for and respond to outbreaks of viral diseases.
3. Define how point-of-care testing may impact patient diagnosis and management over the next decade, and describe the role of laboratory professionals in this evolving area of diagnostics.
4. Identify the advantages and limitations of metagenomics, and discuss whether this technology is poised to become a first-line diagnostic approach for viral infections over the next decade.
