A 5-Day Course Model on Knowledge and Prevention of Serious Occupational Infections in Operating Theatre Rooms
by Etienne Odimba

What is a five-day course on knowledge and prevention of serious occupational infections at operating theatre?

The author felt there was a need to empower health staff with a workshop in knowledge and prevention skills about occupational serious infections. It was especially important to those staff and patients in operating theatre, constantly at risk of contact with someone’s body fluid! This is crucial in Sub-Saharan African countries where these infections are frequent and HIV/AIDS epidemic of high prevalence

The first innovating course at the Lusaka University Teaching Hospital used experienced trainers and improvised with the limited resources available. The results were very satisfactory and the course was highly recommended.

As a result, more than three quarters of participants’ recommendations to the management have been fulfilled. This led to renovations of the main theatres, tremendous improvement on PPE, small equipment, sanitation and services.
