Topic Overview:

Bloodborne pathogen exposures continue to occur among healthcare workers, despite years of attention and a variety of efforts to eliminate them. The AOHP-sponsored Exposure Survey of Trends in Occupational Practice (EXPO-S.T.O.P.) benchmarking research study (in its second year) continues to provide new insights into this issue. This team-taught presentation will demonstrate to conference participants how research and evidence-based practice can inform their management of this crucial concern. The session will include updates on sharps and muco-cutaneous exposure incidence, expand on best Practices in exposure prevention and provide a preview report on the most recent findings.

  2. Discuss examples of prevention best practice.
