Cross Infection Control
Hands and HTM 01-05

Dentaljuce’s excellent module on Cross Infection Control in Dentistry is written in straightforward language for the whole dental team, and covers all you could want to know about this increasingly important core verifiable CPD topic for dentists and dental nurses. If you haven’t subscribed to dentaljuce yet, why not join us now at this amazingly low price !

 The UK Department of Health published guidance on dental cross-infection control in a book called "Decontamination Health Technical Memorandum 01-05: Decontamination in primary care dental practices."

With a large section on how to prepare and care for the hands of people who clean and disinfect dirty and infected dental instruments, UK practices are expected to follow this guidance. HTM 01-05 guidance is not about clinical and surgical procedures – it is about that potentially most dangerous part of the cross infection control process – decontamination.

The juce on this page takes you through the rules in a way that makes you think about it before seeing the answer. You will quickly realise that you can actually work out most of it for yourself without having to learn long lists of rules.
