We need to talk about gloves...

Raclac

We need to talk about gloves...gloves are a vital part of personal protective equipment. But too often, they are used too frequently and for too long. And we have come to rely on gloves as a 'second skin', especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. The overuse of gloves has several important consequences, including the increased risk of transmission, environmental impacts, increased cost, and a reduction in skin health for staff. This presentation will provide an overview on when we should use gloves (and when we shouldn't!), how we should select the most appropriate glove to use for the risks associated with the task at hand, a consideration of the origin and supply chain for our gloves, and a practical example of a campaign to reduce glove usage.

Speaker: Dr. Jon Otter - an active researcher in the field of infection prevention and antimicrobial resistance and the Director of Infection Prevention and Control at Guy's and St. Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust.

Improving Cyber Security by Extending NHS Medical Engineering Practices

Improving Cyber Security by Extending NHS Medical Engineering Practices

Cynerio

Healthcare environments have become the prime target for cybercriminals due to underfunding, lack of expertise and lagging cybersecurity practices. Beginning with WannaCry’s impact on NHS Trusts in 2017 to the hundreds of global ransomware attacks annually, it is clear that cyber criminals have found highly vulnerable, and profitable, targets.

One positive byproduct of these attacks is increased investigation into their root causes, impacts on patient care, resulting financial losses and a variety of other topics. Join the Cynerio and e-Quip teams as they discuss methods used by leading Medical Engineering teams to improve cybersecurity in NHS Trusts.

Throughout the discussion team members will present solutions to the cybersecurity challenges, examples of successful protection efforts, and clear next steps that all healthcare organizations should consider.
