OSAP Launches New Team Huddle Publication Through Its SafestDentalVisit™ Campaign
ANNAPOLIS, MD — March 31, 2014 — For 30 years, the Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP) has been a leading advocate for the safe and infection-free delivery of oral healthcare. As part of its 30th anniversary celebration, OSAP is launching its publication Infection Control in Practice Team Huddle™ through its SafestDentalVisit™ campaign.
The SafestDentalVisit™ campaign is an education program that addresses patient safety, the practice environment and behavior change. The goal of the best practices program is to reduce infections, prevent disease transmission and save lives. The program starts with OSAP’s foundation of educational resources including courseware, education conferences, publications and websites.
The Infection Control in Practice Team Huddle™ is one of the new innovations that OSAP is launching this spring. The Team Huddle publication combines all the best elements of a popular OSAP publication, Infection Control in Practice, has new interactive features and is complete turn-key instruction for infection control staff meetings and trainings.
“OSAP has been exclusively committed to the safety of every dental patient and dental team member for three decades, and the SafestDentalVisit campaign continues this important focus,” said Therese Long, OSAP executive director. “The new Team Huddle publication is an excellent tool for all dental professionals to ensure their practices are using the most up-to-date, effective and safest protocols available.”
This interactive guide features a real-life scenario, discussion and implementation guides, checklists, references, an infection control tip and a fun feature called “What’s Wrong with This Picture?” Continuing education credits are available through the publication for an additional fee.
OSAP would like every dental practice to have the opportunity to experience this new interactive tool and is offering a special 30th anniversary online subscription for just $30. This unique offer is only for practices that do not have a current OSAP membership and includes all six bimonthly in-office guides.
Current OSAP members will continue to receive the print and online version of ICIP Team Huddle, weekly InfoBites, the quarterly newsletter, full access to the website and all previous issues of its publications, free access to its technical advisory service, discounts on courseware and educational courses and much more as part of the membership package.
