March 28, 2014 memo from North Carolina State Epidemiologist, Megan Davies, to NC Dental Healthcare Providers

In North Carolina, every healthcare organization that performs invasive procedures (including injections) is required to designate a credentialed staff person to receive infection control training and implement an infection control program.  The approved infection control curriculum developed by SPICE prepares designated healthcare providers to implement North Carolina’s rule, 10A NCAC 41A .0206 INFECTION PREVENTION – HEALTH CARE SETTINGS.  The dental curriculum, to be revised in 2013, contains seven training modules. Learners will be able to ensure and systematically assess that their facility has the appropriate infection prevention policies and procedures in place to allow healthcare personnel to provide safe patient care consistent with the NC communicable disease rule .0206.

  • Module A: North Carolina Laws Concerning Infection Prevention
  • Module B: Epidemiology and Risk of Infections
  • Module C: Principles and Practices of Asepsis and Hand Hygiene
  • Module D: Principles of Disinfection and Sterilization
  • Module E: Environmental Issues in Disease Transmission
  • Module F: Engineering Controls, Work Practices, and Personal Protective Equipment
  • Module G: Outbreaks and Safe Injection Practices in Dental Settings

The dental curriculum is offered in three formats: on-line, classroom, and webinar.
