Beach. No experience needed as full training is provided.
DAPA presents Infection Prevention in 2017 - Your complete guide to Compliance. Despite the myriad of Infection Control presentations available, there still exists a lot of mis-information and uncertainty concerning sterilisation monitoring, air removal/steam penetration tests, helix and bowie and dick type tests, ultrasonic performance tests, disinfectants and "tracking". Are the products you use compliant or not achieving what you think? Do you still have a few questions? This workshop is just for you! Hear factual information based on legislation and explained in a logical and realistic workshop.
This year your association has partnered with the Australian Health Industry Group to offer members access to Industrial Relations, Human Resources Management and Legal Services for support and advice.
