Aseptic technique: standard and surgical JULY
Be guided through the principles of aseptic technique via a demonstration and practising the key concepts of aseptic technique for procedures performed under local anaesthetic*.
Have you identified your high-risk procedures and developed an appropriate aseptic technique protocol?
We know the more invasive a procedure is, the greater the risks. However, it is not practical or necessary for all invasive procedures to be performed in an operating room type environment. Aseptic technique in theory and practice is scaled to reduce the risk to patients who are undergoing varying degrees of invasive procedures.
Explore the options of your current surgery layout, then develop a plan and protocol to implement routine and surgical aseptic techniques. Practise waterless surgical hand-scrubbing, gowning and gloving, and maintaining a sterile field, including the use of implant kits and handpieces.
Experience a truly practical session and gain confidence that you are well on your way to consolidating this practice.
You will learn:
- risks associated with invasive procedures and determining the appropriate aseptic technique
- surgical hand hygiene technique options
- surgical gowning and gloving techniques
- the importance of preparing for and ensuring support during surgical procedures
- how to establish and maintain an aseptic field for routine procedures, e.g. extractions
- how to establish and ensure a sterile field is maintained for surgical procedures
- the importance of the equipment manufacturer’s instructions for use
- waterless surgical hand-scrub techniques
- surgical gowning and gloving
- safe removal of surgical attire and other personal protective equipment
- how to prepare for a surgical procedure and the equipment for reprocessing.
