EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES & GOALS

NYS law requires that all healthcare professionals, including dentists and hygienists, receive training in infection control and barrier precautions every four years with at least an annual update to their infection control office practices. Dental care involves exposure to blood and airborne pathogens such as HIV, TB, HBV, etc. The unique nature of most dental procedures, instrumentation and patient care settings also requires the specific strategy directed to the prevention of transmission of pathogens among dental healthcare personnel and their patients. Universally applied infection control practices reduce the risk of disease transmission from doctor/staff to patient, patient to doctor/staff, and patient to patient. These strategies/practices are recommended in addition to following OSHA guidelines; these will be discussed in depth. The NYS Amalgam Recycling Law and Waterline (CFU) management as it applies to Infection Control will also be discussed. This lecture will:

  • Provide information about dental infection control principles and practices
  • Emphasize the importance of written policies and procedures and ongoing education and training of dental healthcare personnel
  • Provide information on MANDATORY SAFETY DATA SHEET OSHA CHANGES THAT WENT INTO EFFECT DECEMBER 1, 2013, WITH PRACTITIONERS SUBJECT TO FINE FOR NONCOMPLIANCE AS OF JUNE 1, 2016

After attending this presentation, participants should be able to:

  • Describe modes of disease transmission and the cause of infection
  • Identify strategies that can prevent occupational exposures to blood and body fluids
  • Identify methods to monitor practices and evaluate dental infection control programs.

**A State of New York Department of Health approved Certificate of Completion will be available to all preregistered participants who attend this program in its entirety. The certificate will be awarded onsite. In other circumstances they will be forwarded by Nassau County Dental Society. 

 

A fee of $50.00 will apply for any replacement certificate requests.

 

EDUCATIONAL METHODS

In order to provide an effective learning experience, Dr. Michajliw will be utilizing a slide presentation, distributing educational materials, will be providing a live question and answer session and will review incidences of infection control non-compliance in both private and institutional settings.
