Course Description: Media reports of infection control breaches continue to pop up throughout the country. With increasing government guidelines, a growing awareness of liability exposure, and a public that is increasingly concerned about infection control breaches within healthcare facilities, what steps are you taking to reduce the risks? The CDC outlined in its recommendations that every dental practice have a written exposure control plan and a designated Infection Control Coordinator (ICC) - a person whose job includes staying up to date on infection control and prevention best practices along with overseeing your practice's exposure control plan.
Join Michelle Lee, OSAP's Executive Director, and learn how to best implement this position within your office and how to assist this individual in gaining knowledge and obtaining the resources needed to best protect your patient and your practice. OSAP (Organization for Safety, Asepsis, and Prevention) is the world's leading dental infection prevention non-profit association and works tirelessly to inform and educate the dental community on emerging diseases, changes to regulations and guidelines, and being a community that helps its members stay inspired and motivated to advance compliance with safe practices and procedures. OSAP's vision is that every dental visit is a safe dental visit.
