28 May Our Very Own Luci Perri Will Be Speaking at the APIC 2019 Annual Conference
The Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) hosts the largest gathering of infection prevention professionals in the world. This conference hosts an impressive lineup of industry professionals and accredited experts in the field. With over 100 sessions delving into innovative solutions for infection prevention and control.
This year, our very own Luci Perri will be speaking at a special session titled: Breaches in Dental Infection Prevention-Could This Be Your Practice?
The dental community presents unique challenges for the world of infection control and prevention. As many documented outbreaks of bloodborne diseases such as hepatitis have occurred within the field, this session will highlight key dental infection prevention programs and methodologies. Furthermore, speakers will examine prevention breaches within the dentistry setting and the various practices and steps that can be taken to refine dental infection prevention.
Topics will focus on sterilization methods, injection practices, proper protective equipment, and more.
