Infection Prevention Part 2: Standard Precautions

Standard Precautions make up an integral part in maintaining effective Infection Prevention management so that your entire practice is always safe and compliant. To achieve this, every practice needs to implement consistent processes so that everyone is always doing the right thing.

Description

When it comes to keeping the practice safe and compliant, it is not just one person’s responsibility.

 

In fact, the whole team plays an important role in managing Infection Prevention and Standard Precautions has an integral part to play in maintaining effective Infection Prevention management.

 

Frustrations can often present themselves when different team members do different things; especially when one person may have joined the team from another practice that did things slightly differently. Each practice is different, so having every team member trained in implementing your policies and procedures consistently means frustration and confusion can be eliminated.

 

In this training session, you and your team will learn the importance of Standard Precautions to break the infectious cycle and keep all dental team members and your patients safe.

 

-  Prevention is better than control. Gain a clear understanding of what Standard Precautions are and how it is important to achieve these efficiently and effectively.

Consistency is the key to success. Identify where processes can fail and how to achieve a reproducible workflow so that everyone is doing the right thing in exactly the way your practice requires it.

 

Preventing transmission of diseases helps to protect the practice – not just from a well-being and safety perspective, but the reputation of the entire practice as well.

 

Audience: Dentist, Specialist, Hygienist/Therapist, Practice Owner, Practice Manager, Dental Assistant / Nurse, Front Office Coordinator.
