Free CE-Credited Webinar Addresses the Importance of Compliance
Central Sterile Supply Department personnel‚ Infection Preventionists‚ OR Managers‚ and Quality Managers in all healthcare facilities
3M Health Care announces a collaboration with oneSOURCE Document Site to help encourage compliance with manufacturers’ Instructions for Use (IFUs) during decontamination and sterilization of medical instruments. Compliance with IFUs is emphasized in guidance and guidelines from industry organizations and governmental bodies such as AAMI‚ AORN‚ CDC‚ CMS‚ and The Joint Commission. Using processes and cycles that have been validated by manufacturers and documented in IFUs leads to more reliable sterilization outcomes and reduces the risk of improperly sterilized devices.
3M and oneSOURCE Document Site are providing three opportunities to learn more about managing and complying with manufacturers’ IFUs: a CE-credited webinar through 3M™ Sterile U‚ a limited-time offer of free access to 3M IFUs on the oneSOURCE Document Site‚ and a free demo of the oneSOURCE Document Site service.
For a complete overview‚ please join David Jagrosse‚ CSPDT‚ for a CE-credited webinar presentation:
