Patient safety is a vital part of the deliver of health care services. A basic understanding of disease transmission and epidemiology are a key part of the foundation necessary to ensure health care workers are equipped to make reasonable decisions regarding infection control practices. Following that fundamental knowledge, being able to implement clinical practices that are reasonable and effective is imperative to continued quality care. This course brings these two elements together to assist participants in ensuring their dental practice is a safe environment for patients and workers alike. Reinforcement through hands-on participation in exercises to demonstrate infection control practices will help participants put this knowledge into practice in their own setting.
