July 23 WEBINAR (US): Building a Comprehensive Endoscope Quality Control Plan

Date & Time

July 23, 2019 2 – 2:30 pm ET

Speaker

Jenni Gibbs, Manager, Central Sterile Department, Altru Health System

Purpose

Endoscope reprocessing is highly complex and requires a comprehensive quality control plan to assure processes are highly reliable. This session will discuss the top evolving best practices and the steps to build a highly reliable endoscope reprocessing and sterilization program. A successful quality control plan incorporates analysis of microbial cultures and verification of manual cleaning by residual protein testing and borescope inspection. A comprehensive plan should also include technicians’ work environment, education, competencies, certifications, and pay. This session will compare disinfection and sterilization risks and outline a process to engage an interdisciplinary team to support quality endoscope reprocessing.

Who Should Attend

This webinar will benefit many of the disciplines associated with the sterile processing and GI workflow including sterilization and GI managers/directors, infection prevention and risk management.

Objectives

1. Identify factors in developing an endoscope quality control plan.
2. Demonstrate how a comprehensive quality control plan leads to highly reliable processes.
3. Analyze residual protein testing, borescope inspection, and culture data to impact quality measures.
