The Organization for Safety and Asepsis Procedures (OSAP) has announced the first winners of its “I See IC” contest for YouTube-style video clips and still photos that promote infection control in the operatory.
The winners for August are Mike and Leslie Canham for “The Beauty Pageant for Gloves” (video category) and the Dental Assisting Class of Santa Rosa Junior College for “The IC (NOT!) Collection” (still photo category, pictured at right).
The winners won cash and will be able to select their own camcorder (video winner) or camera (photo category) as an additional prize.
The “I See IC” contest continues through the end of the year, with prizes for each category awarded monthly. At the end of the year, a grand prize winner will be selected. To enter the contest, participants create a short video clip or still photo that captures good infection-control procedures in action or unmasks the hazards of poor technique. A link on the OSAP Web site allows participants to upload their submissions. Contest rules and criteria for acceptable entries are also available. There is no charge to enter.
