This session has been designed as an overview of device reprocessing for community-based healthcare providers. Collaboration between disciplines such as dental practice and nursing foot care has demonstrated commonality in device reprocessing. Using the CSA Z314.18 document as a practice foundation, and with a focus on the use of table-top steam sterilizers, the presenters will discuss steps in device reprocessing as it applies to a broad spectrum of community-based healthcare providers. A spotlight on specific instrumentation will be provided to raise awareness to an informed community knowing that audience members are also patients in other settings.
