Role of Editorial Review Board

Goal of ICIP

Infection Control in Practice
(ICIP) is OSAP’s bi-monthly newsletter. It is targeted to the dental assistant/dental nurse and is intended to both inform and develop the reader's ability to lead initiatives related to infection prevention, patient safety and occupational safety in a dental setting.

Theme for 2011 - Empowering Yourself and Others

Building on to ICIP's successful scenario format, the editorial in 2011 will add a development component. After each scenario and potential consequences, a section on "empowering yourself and others" will be introduced. This new feature will include suggested language and examples specifically designed to encourage the dental assistant/dental nurse in how to implement the information and education to improve the practice.

Editorial Review Board (ERB) Role in 2011
  • Support OSAP’s goal of producing a high-quality publication that helps members stay abreast of current and emerging issues and trends in dental infection prevention, patient safety and occupational safety.
    • How?  By:
      • Reviewing the draft content for accuracy, relevancy and clarity – in other words, the substantive measure of the work. You are not expected to mark language, grammar, or punctuation errors; reviewers’ duties are more reflective and analytical with serious concentration on content, not language.
  • Serve as an advocate of the reader.
    • How?  By:
      • Contributing language, examples and suggestions designed to empower the dental assistant/dental nurse to successfully implement or integrate the information and education contained in the bi-monthly content.
