Surgical Sterilization and Disinfection: Package Patient Care Items for Sterilization Mobile App
The Surgical Sterilization and Disinfection: Package Patient Care Items for Sterilization app was developed to make available a training aid which will assist Surgical Service Technicians to develop technical skills essential to performing specialized tasks.
How does it work?
The tasks are broken down into teachable elements, which help the trainer guide the trainee into becoming proficient with the tasks. The app will also aid the task certifier when evaluating trainees for task certification. The apps evaluation instructions cover the following: 1. This app should be evaluated during actual performance of the tasks. 2. Before evaluating the tasks, the evaluator should review with the trainee the material in the training references covering types and characteristics of wrapping materials, and should ensure the trainee understands the advantages and disadvantages of each type and method available. 3. After the trainee has received instruction, allow sufficient practice on each part of the task. The trainee must satisfactorily perform all parts of the task without assistance. 4. Use the appropriate checklist when evaluating the task to ensure all steps of the task are accomplished. 5. Document competency upon satisfactory completion of the evaluation. Initial evaluation should be documented in the Specialty Training Standard (STS).
