The Organization for Safety, Asepsis, and Prevention (OSAP)—an advocate for the safe and infection-free delivery of oral healthcare—has launched a new publication, Infection Control in Practice Team Huddle™ through its SafestDentalVisit™ campaign. The new publication comes as OSAP marks its 30th anniversary.

The SafestDentalVisit campaign is an education program that addresses patient safety, the practice environment, and behavior change. The goal of the best practices program is to reduce infections, prevent disease transmission, and save lives. The program starts with OSAP’s educational resources, including courseware, education conferences, publications, and websites.

According to OSAP, the Infection Control in Practice Team Huddle publication combines “all the best elements” of the organization’s popular publication, Infection Control in Practice, with new interactive features, providing complete turn-key instruction for infection control staff meetings and trainings.

“OSAP has been exclusively committed to the safety of every dental patient and dental team member for three decades, and the SafestDentalVisit campaign continues this important focus,” said Therese Long, OSAP executive director. “The new Team Huddle publication is an excellent tool for all dental professionals to ensure their practices are using the most up-to-date, effective, and safest protocols available.”

This interactive guide features a real-life scenario, discussion and implementation guides, checklists, references, an infection control tip, and a fun feature called “What’s Wrong with This Picture?” Continuing education credits are available through the publication for an additional fee.

OSAP would like every dental practice to have the opportunity to experience this new interactive tool and is offering a special 30th anniversary online subscription for just $30. This offer is only for practices that do not have a current OSAP membership and includes all six bimonthly in-office guides.

Current OSAP members will continue to receive the print and online version of ICIP Team Huddle, weekly InfoBites, the quarterly newsletter, full access to the website and all previous issues of its publications, free access to its technical advisory service, discounts on courseware and educational courses, and much more as part of the membership package.
