On the 24th May 2023, at the National Imaging Academy, Nanosonics sponsored the CPD-accredited Wales Study Day: The Future of Ultrasound Probe Decontamination, where healthcare professionals heard about the latest best practices and innovations in decontaminating ultrasound probes.
The complimentary event was a great success and saw delegates engage, discuss, question, and network with expert speakers and other like-minded people.
The Study Day was designed to help improve the safety of patients, clinics, their staff, and the environment by promoting the best practice of decontamination of ultrasound probes and the way infection prevention practices are understood and conducted.
As well as showcasing new innovations that help to deliver improved standards of care.
We are pleased to share with you a copy of each speaker’s educational presentation.
