Abstract [sv]

I en enkätstudie har omfattningen av den patientnära laboratorieverksamheten i dagens svenska primärvård kartlagts. De fem vanligaste analyserna var urintestremsa, P-glukos, P-CRP och snabbtest för grupp A-streptokocker samt B-hemoglobin.

Jämfört med data som publicera­des för 20 år sedan har volymen av patientnära analyser ökat, framför allt på grund av den nya analysen CRP.

Även graden av ackreditering och kvalitetssäkring i dagens patientnära laborerande studerades; det framgick att ackrediteringsgraden varierar mellan 0 och 100 procent i olika regioner.

Abstract [en]

Primary health care encompasses laboratory testing where the entire analysis is performed by health care professionals in close proxim­ity to the patient. The purpose of this survey was to understand the range of testing performed in primary health care in Sweden. The results obtained from the survey have been compared to data on the same topic published twenty years ago. The most frequently performed analyses in primary health care have barely changed in the last twenty years. For example, hemoglobin and sedimentation rate analyses are still prevalent. The variety of analyses performed in primary health care has increased, however. C-reactive protein is now a commonly performed analysis. Moreover, in this survey, the degree to which laboratories are quality assured and accredited has been investigated. Accreditation and quality assurance of laboratories varies regionally in Sweden with those facilities meeting the criteria varying from 0% in a province to 100%.
