New Advances in the Science of Ultraviolet Room Disinfection: Bringing Together Clinical, Operational & Financial Perspectives

October 11, 2022

Time: 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

 

Join Dr. Hudson Garrett and UVDI for an upcoming accredited, continuing education webinar. Session Objectives: • Discuss the need for a renewed focus on cleaning and disinfection in all healthcare settings • Review the current evidence-based clinical recommendations for disinfection of the complex healthcare environment, including high-risk patient care environments • Discuss how to objectively evaluate novel disinfection technologies to maximize ROI and improve clinical, financial, and operational outcomes Session Overview: The continued threats posed by infectious diseases are a constant reminder of the importance of regular environmental surface disinfection in Healthcare-Associated Infections. Using novel technologies such as UV disinfection devices can assist with the disinfection of high-risk clinical areas and large-surface area environments. These technologies must be carefully evaluated through a clinical, financial, and operational lens.
