In this course we will look at the relevant infection prevention and control standards that dental practices in Australia and New Zealand are required to have and be familiar with. Essential documentation is an important part of maintaining high levels of compliance. We will cover where each of the essential documents fits into the overall achievement of compliance in the dental practice.
To implement, maintain and monitor policies and procedures within the dental practice there is a non-clinical element to consider. Policies and procedures are required to ensure consistent, predictable sterilisation outcomes. For these to be achieved staff need to know what is required, why and how things are to be managed. Dentistry has several Standards and industry guidelines to follow to be compliant and understanding these is as important as the infection prevention and control tasks themselves.
