Annapolis, MD:September 29, 2015-The Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP), the advocate for The Safest Dental Visit™, is seeking ideas for fresh new programming for their Annual Infection Control Symposium, June 2-4, 2016, in San Diego, CA. OSAP is inviting proposals for educational programs, session content or speakers. The objective is to cast the widest possible net to ensure that the 2016 program is rich with new content and speakers. The OSAP Symposium is the premier global educational event in dental infection control and patient safety.
The goal of the 2016 OSAP Symposium is to create and empower champions in the safe delivery of oral healthcare through didactic, interactive, and networking sessions. The Symposium will address evolving guidance, compliance and emerging infection prevention and safety issues. The most relevant science, policies, procedures and resources for patient and provider infection control and safety will be delivered.
OSAP invites submissions of ideas for programs from 15 minutes to 2 hours long, in virtually any kind of format (single speaker, panel, workshop, etc.), and using a presentation format ranging from standard lecture to PowerPoint, video, or audience interactivity. Programs should relate to current and emerging issues involving infection prevention and safety in oral healthcare settings, and ideally should include resources, tools, and networks to optimize compliance. Proposals must be submitted by November 6, 2015. OSAP will notify all submitters as to the acceptance decision by November 30, 2015.
