RCN symposium on aseptic technique

11 Apr 2019 10:30 - 16:00

Royal College of Nursing, 20 Cavendish Square, Marylebone, London, W1G 0RN

FREE

Fully booked

As part of an on-going programme of work this event will provide an update on progress of the RCN work on aseptic technique which commenced in July 2018.

This work has to date:

  • Built on RCN members feedback and requests to explore aseptic technique from a holistic perspective
  • Worked with nurses to explore experiences of asepsis and aseptic technique in practice
  • Used a Delphi methodology to explore definitions and language associated with asepsis and aseptic technique to begin the process of agreeing a common vocabulary to support nursing practice 
  • Explored how procurement decisions impact on aseptic technique in practice
  • Linked current RCN activity on glove use to the aseptic technique programme

The conference is open to anyone interested in clinical nursing practice and aseptic technique. It will be of particular interest to nurses in all care settings working in NHS and Independent care sectors.  The event will also be of value to nurse educators, practice based educators, procurement and infection prevention and control specialist nurses.  This will be an interactive day and use participant feedback to shape the next phase of this work.

The event key objectives are:

  • To present the outcomes of the RCN work to date including the Delphi study and member survey
  • To use participant interaction and feedback to shape the next phase in the evolution of RCN work on aseptic technique
  • To debate procurement and the value of glove inclusion in pre-prepared dressing packs
