Offered by the Medical Device Reprocessing Association of Ontario (MDRAO).
REGISTRATION RUNS FROM May 15 – Jan 31 EVERY YEAR.
The MDRAO Medical Device Reprocessing Techniques Online Course provides information to support Medical Device Reprocessing staff members in their work in the field of reprocessing.
The information required by staff to ensure their safety and the patient’s safety within healthcare organizations is expanding, as new antibiotic resistant micro-organisms become more prevalent in our society.
Staff require in depth understanding of the principles of decontamination, assembly and sterilization to function effectively, to reduce risk to themselves and the patients. They need to have a basis for critical decision-making when unusual incidents occur.
