MEDICA

Description

MEDICA is the world’s largest event for the medical sector. For more than 40 years it has been firmly established on every expert’s calendar. There are many reasons why MEDICA is so unique. Firstly, the event is the largest medical trade fair in the world – in 2016 it attracted more than 5,100 exhibitors from 70 countries in 17 halls. Furthermore, each year, leading individuals from the fields of business, research, and politics grace this top-class event with their presence — naturally alongside tens of thousands of national and international experts and decision-makers from the sector, such as yourself. An extensive exhibition and an ambitious program — which together present the entire spectrum of innovations for outpatient and clinical care — await you in Düsseldorf.

IDSc CONFERENCE 2016

Description

The IDSc CONFERENCE 2017 Technical Programme is designed to embrace the many changes that are taking place within our profession; it highlights both advanced practice and management subjects and will be most beneficial to anyone involved in the processing of re-useable medical devices.

The opening session welcomes speakers from the UK Department of Health and its support groups who are involved in developing and coordinating the transfer of sterile services into professional decontamination healthcare scientific services.

The first afternoon has an excellent presentation describing Continuous Professional Development (CPD) systems and requirements for professional registration (an essential for the future!).

Our second day is divided into two sections: the first providing a mini-workshop on Empowerment followed by a useful presentation on Preparing your Portfolio.

After lunch the session is dedicated to scientific matters addressing the following issues:

  • the need to sterilise flexible endoscopes
  • changes to Medical Device Regulations
  • Health Technical Memorandum (HTM) revisions
  • testing test methods and their implications
  • reviewing sterilisation parameters in line with revised practice

Definitely an informative session to look forward to.

 

The final morning opens with two presentations relating to improved methods of packaging and ascertaining whether the prevalent use of rigid containers is always a safe practice.

The concluding session will launch the IDSc Research Programme; this is an exciting new development, led by Professor Tony Young, involving all our members.
