When ‘yes’ means ‘maybe’ – are you actually a yes? Are you complying with your statutory requirements for Infection Prevention and Control? When you tick ‘yes’ on your APC, do you mean ‘yes’, or are you a ‘maybe’? How would you fare if the practice you work in (you) was audited tomorrow?

When ‘yes’ means ‘maybe’ – are you actually a yes? Are you complying with your statutory requirements for Infection Prevention and Control? When you tick ‘yes’ on your APC, do you mean ‘yes’, or are you a ‘maybe’? How would you fare if the practice you work in (you) was audited tomorrow? Every individual clinician has a responsibility to ensure the required infection prevention and control protocols are being adhered to, in the practice where they work. The NZDA Code of Practice: Infection Prevention and Control in Dental Practice, was created to assist you to comply with your professional, legal and ethical obligations. Infection Prevention – it’s simple (or certainly can be)! In this half day lecture we look at a pro-active approach to contemporary infection prevention including your accountability and responsibility and knowing how infection prevention is achieved in your practice. Whether you are a business owner or an employee clinician, you will gain an understanding of what it really means to ‘tick the boxes’ and learn how you can empower your team to drive compliance with you at the helm. A common-sense approach that translates the required expectations of AS/NZS 4187:2014 and AS/NZ4815:2006 (as applicable) DCNZ Infection Prevention and Control Practice Standard (March 2016) and NZDA - Code of Practice / Infection Prevention and Control in Dental Practice (August 2015) into effective and efficient workflow implementation. Our ultimate objective is to provide all dental practices, regardless of size, the knowledge and ability to implement practical everyday protocols to create optimum infection prevention and sterilisation management in their practice. Compliance requires a team approach, so this session will be suitable for the entire dental team.
