The Central Sterilising Club (CSC) is the original decontamination forum.
This year’s CSC Annual Scientific Meeting will be held on the 16th and 17th April 2018, at the Cardiff Marriott Hotel.
We have designed our program to cover topical issues which provide insights and examples into how to manage the challenges of decontamination.
We are proud that this year’s Kelsey Lecture will be presented by Professor Manfred Rotter, Medical University Vienna. His historical perspective on testing the efficacy of hand antiseptics will be dedicated to the memory of Professor Graham Ayliffe (CSC chair 1986-89)
We have sessions on endoscopes - A “Back to Basics” approach to training, decontamination, transport and storage of reusable endoscopes including recommended uses of drying v storage cabinets.
A personal view of a multi-disciplinary approach to decontamination processes in a major teaching hospital; the benefits of joint working.
We also look at how cleaning efficacy can be improved in support of achieving acceptable protein levels on surgical instruments and as usual the opportunity to network with colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere generated by the Club. We look forward to seeing you in Cardiff!
