In this course we will look at reprocessing requirements and the steps to achieving sterilisation. Cleaning is a crucial step for achieving sterilisation. Testing, monitoring and record keeping also plays an important role in infection prevention. In this Module we will cover what different tests are required and the what, when and why each of these is needed.
The tasks undertaken in the reprocessing area contribute significantly to overall compliance and sterilisation outcomes. The purpose of this course is to provide learners with the knowledge required to recognise inefficiencies in the reprocessing and sterilisation area. This also includes strategies to assist learners identify and improve workflows along with tasks that monitor and record sterilisation compliance requirements.
