A key principle of infection control is to take action to stay healthy! One of the simplest action items—Hand hygiene—is one of the most basic yet misunderstood methods to prevent the spread of microbes.
This CE webinar will discuss how dental personnel are at risk for disease transmission as they may acquire pathogenic microorganisms from patients and others within the dental facility. Hand hygiene in accordance with CDC Guidelines and OSHA Standards will be addressed, as well as appropriate methods and motivation techniques to enhance compliance and ensure a safe dental visit for all.
During this CE webinar, we will
• Explain the relationship between hand hygiene & the spread of infection
• Describe hand hygiene policies and protocol to mitigate germs that may be transmitted-- during the delivery of dental care
• Discuss product considerations that may enhance hand hygiene compliance
• Identify appropriate methods of motivation & monitoring to enhance compliance
