Guideline Update: Transmission-Based Precautions

December 5, 2018
9 am (PT); 10 am (MT); 11 am (CT); 12 pm (ET),

Speaker: Amber Wood, MSN, RN, CNOR, CIC, FAPIC


The rapidly changing health care environment presents perioperative personnel with continual challenges in the form of newly recognized pathogens and well-known microorganisms that have become more resistant to today’s therapeutic modalities. Protecting patients and personnel from transmission of potentially infectious agents continues to be a primary focus for perioperative RNs. This webinar will review the recently updated AORN Guideline for Transmission-Based Precautions (formerly titled “Prevention of Transmissible Infections”), which provides evidence-based guidance for nursing practice.

Outcomes


Describe recent revisions in the AORN Guideline for Transmission-Based Precautions.

Explain how to select and correctly use personal protective equipment to prevent transmission of infectious pathogens.

Learn to safely care for surgical patients who require contact, droplet, and airborne precautions while minimizing risks to health care workers and other patients.
