OSAP Shakes it Up for 2010 Symposium
Monday, October 26, 2009
The Organization for Safety & Asepsis Procedures (OSAP) has announced their 2010 Infection Prevention Symposium: SHAKE IT UP – *O*vercome complacency, *S*upport compliance, *A*dvance a culture of safety, *P*repare for contingencies, which will be held June 10-13, 2010 at the Hyatt Regency in Tampa, Florida. The information-packed Symposium is designed to provide a wealth of take-aways to help oral healthcare educators and consultants, and dental professionals responsible for infection control and safety in their clinics and practices, address today’s fast-changing safety and infection control challenges.
A Thursday morning golf tournament kicks off the Symposium. The tournament, which raises funds for the OSAP Foundation, is open to all; no Symposium registration is required. Thursday also offers special pre-conference content for educators and consultants. Friday, following a day of informative sessions that include a spotlight on H1N1, a panel on social media and public health, information on new technologies, and the Zapp Lecture, the popular OSAP auction will again feature an astounding array of fabulous items. Saturday offers a full day of workshops and information sessions, on topics ranging from ergonomics to how to write an abstract and how to create clear infection control/safety messages. Optional post-conference session offerings are available Sunday morning.
Sunny Tampa Florida features more than 2,000 acres of parks and beaches within the city limits and is very accessible- just a $10 van ride from the airport, which is served by Southwest and other inexpensive carriers. Saturday night’s dine-around event will give participants a chance to experience the dynamic restaurant scene in Tampa and will include a tour of historic Ybor City, where the Cuban sandwiches are hot and crisp, the cigars are hand-rolled, and the colorful streets are lined with fun.
