OSAP member experts offer tips on how to "start the conversation" with patients about 3 important infection control practices. Do you want to share your video on how to "talk infection control" with patients? Consider shooting a brief video (no real patients please to comply with HIPAA). Your video may be selected for inclusion on the OSAP website!

 1. Hand Hygiene

 2. Instrument Processing

Let's talk 'CLEAN HANDS" with our patients.

Stay tuned for a brief video that delivers a fun way to message hand hygiene to patients (and their families). Hand hygiene is such an important infection control practice. Be sure to weave it in to the conversation! 

Let's talk "STERILE INSTRUMENTS"

OSAP Board member, Karen Gregory RN, provides one way to introduce this topic to patients to increase their confidence in how your practice performs appropriate instrument processing. Click HERE to access the recording.


 

 3. Dental Unit Waterline Safety

 

 

 How do YOU "have the  conversation"?

Let's talk "SAFE WATER" 

Dental healthcare personnel and patients could be placed at risk of adverse health effects if water is not appropriately treated. CLICK HERE for video!

Share your video!

OSAP encourages you to submit a brief video describing how you might discuss one of these 3 target infection control practices with patients. Note - the video must be less than 2 minutes and may not feature real patients (HIPAA!). Send your videos to tlong@osap.org for posting!
