Hygiene, Infection Control and Waste Disposal - DOCET’s new CET training film gives optometrists guidance on identifying and managing infection control risks.
DOCET’s latest audio-visual CET resource follows a typical high-street optometric practice as they prepare for a hygiene inspection, and provides optometrists with clear guidance on identifying and managing hygiene risks and hazards, including:
Geoff Roberson, DOCET’s training adviser on the programme says: “Although infection control risks are lower in optometric practice than in some other clinical settings, concerns around the spread of healthcare born infections, the transmission of neurodegenerative triggers and new influenza strains have highlighted the importance of good infection control procedures supported by effective waste disposal practices. The programme also includes a clear, step-by-step demonstration of correct hand-washing technique in accordance with World Health Organisation guidance. Hand washing is a key part of maintaining good infection control”.
The 35 minute film is divided into chapters, so busy optometrists can easily view it section by section, and offers 2 CET points to optometrists completing the related MCQs (CET expires 28 August 2013).
The film is available online to all optometrists currently registered with the GOC in the UK, via the ‘CET Zone’ at www.docet.info. It is also being distributed by post in DVD format.
