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.

International Editorial Consultants (IEC) Role in 2011
  • Support OSAP’s goal of producing a high-quality publication that helps international 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 readers outside the United States.
    • How? By:
      • Contributing information about the latest developments in infection control and occupational health and safety in your part of the world
      • Reporting on outcomes of interest at significant meetings and conferences in which infection control and safety issues are presented
      • Suggesting international experts and companies with whom OSAP can partner to help communicate our message of dental safety.
      • Advise the Editor-in-Chief on how to improve ICIP and/or how ICIP may be better adapted for your region.
