Quality Systems for Endoscopy Decontamination
This dedicated NHS course has been developed to give endoscopy staff a relevant and useful guide to managing and understanding decontamination. If you would benefit from the opportunity to refresh your knowledge of what the guidelines are, what they mean in practice and how they should influence your decision making then this is the event for you.
If you are unsure of decontamination guidelines, how to optimise ISO13485 or want to improve your bed-kit management, then this interactive forum will enhance your understanding and help you to run a smoother endoscopy service. Come together to learn strategies to:
- Benchmark with other NHS services and discover how they respond to alerts and challenges
- Stay up to date with the guidelines and implement changes clearly and effectively
- Understand the implications of moving to a paperless system
- Clearly define standards and improve infection control
- Share knowledge amongst a group of supportive like-minded professionals
Previously described as “very informative and enlightening on what we should be doing!” this unique workshop will illuminate the grey areas for endoscopy decontamination and answer your questions on resolving recurring issues and procedures to follow after non-compliant test results. Take one day out and inform your approach to the technical side of decontamination guidance:
- How to achieve ISO 13485: what you need to know
- Following JAG guidelines: understanding and overcoming the common challenges
- Improving tracking and tracing: guidance on Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) for your trust
- Practical approaches for advancing your infection control and minimising outbreaks
