Endoscope decontamination training

As part of its comprehensive program of educational support, Getinge offers special two-day courses for endoscopy department personnel. The courses are held both at Getinge Academy in Sweden and at Getinge UK Academy.

Getinge's endoscope decontamination trainingenables your staff to satisfy strict procedures and requirements for quality assurance, as well as achieve compliance with all laws and regulations pertaining to the cleaning and disinfecting of endoscopy equipment. The courses are designed and intended for all personnel in endoscopy departments, including nurses and med-tech engineers, and provide training on how to decontaminate endoscopes in accordance with best-practice healthcare standards and norms.
Unlike the majority of courses offered by the Getinge Academy, our endoscopy cleaning and disinfection training is completely product-independent.

Comments from attendees:

"I think it was a very useful course. I liked the format of mixing lectures with group discussions. I also think that the speakers were very skilled and experienced. I have worked with endoscopy for 23 years, and still I have learned a lot during these two days. Attending this course has made me realize that we need to review some of our processes and routines."

Mona Olofsson, Endoscopy assistant, Avesta, Sweden.

"The course exceeded my expectations. The speakers responded to our questions professionally and independently of the brand they represent. I would recommend this course to others."

Gunvor Åkerfeldt, Infection Control Nurse, Stockholm, Sweden.
