Event description

Description

Decontamination and Sterilization
A Manufacturer’s Recommendation
With some reusable medical devices (RMDs) being more “challenging” to decontaminate than others, any mistake has direct implications towards the safety of the dental team and patients. It is especially confusing when not all sterilizers/sterilization cycles are designed to sterilize every type of RMD.

This presentation provides;
● A decontamination protocol required for instruments and handpieces
● A rational description of the types of sterilizing loads and cycle-types, testing and validation of sterilizers
● Includes supporting information from Australian Standards (4815, 4187) and ADA Guidelines (2015)

Presented by
Christopher Jobson
W&H Territory Manager
Australia/New Zealand

Christopher Jobson has worked exclusively within the Australian dental industry for thirty years, both in consumable and equipment sales and for the past ten years with the handpiece and sterilizer manufacturer W&H. W&H’s experience in decontamination and sterilization is well-known, as is their ongoing commitment to infection control education to Dental Professionals and Industry. Chris has gathered practical knowledge and experience through his activities and contacts with dental professionals and experts in the field of infection control, supported by his technical knowledge and as a manufacturer of dental handpieces and benchtop steam sterilizers. W&H is a member of the Australian Dental Industry Association, and Christopher is one of two ADIA members to sit on the HE-023 committee for the update of Australian Standards – most recently AS/NZS 4187:2014. Chris offers a manufacturer’s perspective based on European Norms, ISO standards and local AU/NZ standards on the topic of hygiene protocol and sterilization of reusable medical devices.
