Introduction to Infection Control and Decontamination

As dental professionals, to fulfil our professional responsibilities and our duty of care, we need to undertake infection control and decontamination processes to provide a safe working environment for our patients and all practice team members. We need to protect our patients and all team members from cross infection and reduce the transmission of blood-borne viruses and SARS-CoV-2.

This online course will provide you with a clear understanding of why we need infection control and decontamination procedures and how we can achieve robust infection control measures in the dental practice.
