Ansell launch "Sharps Injury" Self-Study Guide

Ansell has an ongoing commitment to the development of quality products and services for the healthcare industry. It has recently introduced a self-study guide on the prevention of sharps injuries which has now been endorsed by the European Operating Room Nurses Association.

This self-study, Clinical Reference Manual: PREVENTION OF SHARPS INJURIES IN THE HEALTHCARE SETTING is one in a series of continuing education services provided by Ansell. This education module examines sharps injuries and the EU Directive 2010/32/EU.

Accidental sharps injuries in the peri-operative setting are serious problems. Many healthcare workers acquire infectious diseases from bloodborne pathogens or injuries in the course of their work. The cost of injury and exposure takes an emotional and financial toll on the healthcare worker, their families and the facility.

Awareness of the risk associated with these exposures has lead to an emphasis on protection for healthcare workers. European Directive 2010/32/EU on the prevention of sharps injuries in the healthcare sector provides guidelines and regulations as a means of protection and safety. This education module examines basic strategies and processes that can raise awareness of and help minimize the risk of sharps injuries.

This self-study guide is downloadable here.
