Program Description:

Infection Prevention is essential for the health and safety of patients and dental health professionals. In order to prevent the transmission of microorganisms and disease requires breaking the chain of infection. This entails performing a series of repeatable and sequential steps for effective infection prevention. The CDC recommendations on infection control for the dental setting include Standard Precautions that should be followed on a daily basis and includes procedures to be performed at the beginning of the day, before and after treating each patient and at the end of the day. The objective of this course is to provide the dental healthcare professional with an overview of current infection prevention protocols that are required to break the chain of infection and prevent disease transmission.

 

Course Objectives:

1. Review the elements of Standard Precautions recommended for effective infection prevention
2. Describe engineering and work controls that help prevent the transmission of bloodborne pathogens and other microorganisms
3. Implement effective infection prevention using a sequential and systematic approach that follows the CDC recommendations
