Crosstex/SPSmedical announces that the second installment of its 2015 Sterilization Classroom series with Chuck Hughes is available now. "Sterile Packaging (Pouches, Wrap and Containers)" educational program is free and will provide healthcare professionals with solutions to improve their departments and better comply with industry standards.
Selecting the most appropriate sterilization packaging for use in the healthcare setting today is a challenging responsibility for sterile processing departments, and has an impact on surgical instruments and medical devices, infection control and patient safety, and the healthcare facility's bottom line. The proper selection, use, and performance of sterilization packaging systems is crucial to achieving sterilization of the package contents, maintaining sterility of the contents until the package is opened for use, and permitting removal of the contents without contamination.
Register by visiting www.spsmedical.com/education. All program material will be emailed to your attention within 48 hours after the registration is submitted. Once complete, simply email [email protected] to get your copy of the CEU certificate.
This is the second of four educational programs for 2015. Each installment is approved for one CE through multiple organizations such as IAHCSMM and CBSPD for sterile processing and CBRN for nursing professionals.
Certified as a health education teacher, Chuck Hughes has worked for more than 25 years in the manufacturing industry in areas of R&D, regulatory affairs, microbiology, marketing and sterilization training.
