Aseptic technique: standard and surgical OCTOBER
How well do you understand the concept and application of aseptic technique and do you have a documented protocol or plan?
Aseptic technique in theory and practice is scaled to reduce the risk to patients who are undergoing varying degrees of invasive procedures. The Dental Board of Australia, in their self reflective tool, asks you to consider your understanding and application of aseptic technique in these circumstance
Together we can identify these procedures, as well as develop and document an appropriate aseptic technique protocol.
Experience a truly practical session by exploring the options of your current surgery layout and developing a plan and protocol to implement routine and surgical aseptic techniques. Practise waterless surgical hand scrubbing, gowning and gloving, and maintaining a sterile field, including the use of implant kits and handpieces.
You will learn:
- how to determine the appropriate aseptic technique based on the procedure, your specific circumstances and recognised standards
- surgical hand hygiene technique options – traditional and waterless hand scrubs
- surgical gowning and gloving techniques including safe removal
- the importance of preparing for and ensuring support during surgical procedures
- how to establish and maintain an aseptic field for simple and complex procedures
