Course information
Product information

This course is the premier source of contemporary infection prevention and control (IPC) information for the dental profession and is coming to Western Australia for the first time in two years.    

This course is  not all about COVID-19.

This is a fun and interactive course that focuses on the key elements to strategically manage infection risk in dental practices while empowering teams with purpose-driven values.

This course distils vast amounts of important and dynamic information into sensible and manageable risk-based concepts and has supported thousands of dental practices on the East Coast of Australia to confidently navigate IPC best practice moving forward.  

We know that  practice teams that have a good understanding of the most important elements of IPC leads to benefits such as:

  • improved efficiency by streamlining processes
  • being more sustainable by reducing single use plastics using risk-based principles
  • using evidence and best practice concepts to seek and identify quality improvements
  • having more confidence with creating and following policies thereby reducing variation; and
  • creating a culture of continuous quality improvement ensuring services are person centred, safe and effective.
Topics include:
  • COVID-19! Learning from other states with high transmission rates  
  • Roles and responsibilities to deliver high-quality IPC
  • The regulatory landscape for IPC and how this affects healthcare consumer expectations  
  • What affects IPC compliance and team performance – and what to do about it
  • Principles for steriliser testing and indicator use
  • Starting with IPC to improve dental practice  sustainability efforts
  • Objective approach to Batch Control Identification
  • Confidence with storage of instruments and managing the environment
  • The Top 5 IPC areas of opportunity for over 200 dental practices – lessons learned
Learning Objectives:

This course aims to improve confidence and team performance by focusing on the key elements of managing IPC risk across a dental practice.  

This course is suitable for all registered dental practitioners, Australian Dental Council candidates, prosthetists and the  whole dental team.
