"A variety of infection control products and approaches will be presented in this lively and interactive hands-on workshop. Basic disease transmission and infection control will be explored in light of current documented knowledge while using products as instructional tools-and gifts. Misconceptions and common problems will be discussed, along with potential implications and consequences. The program is intended to help participants get maximum effectiveness from their infection control efforts. Really use and see (with glow germs and other activities) how different techniques and products work - and go home with a bag of samples and many new ideas!"
