On 9 March 2021, the 1st course on flexible endoscopy reprocessing was held at the Morales Meseguer Hospital in Murcia, Spain. Coinciding with the installation and commissioning of 3 CANTEL ADVANTAGE PLUS reprocessors and a CANTEL ISA reprocessor/sterilizer, the hospital, together with the technical participation of MATACHANA, prepared interesting training sessions with free access to all hospital staff in the theoretical session and specifically for endoscopy staff in the intense workshop.

During the course, aspects related to cleaning, disinfection, drying and transport of flexible endoscopes were combined, using the ESGENA reprocessing guidelines as a reference. There was also an update on clinical microbiology, highly focused on the current pandemic and the prevention and education campaigns undertaken, which are vital to understand and protocolise work guidelines and appropriate prevention measures in these units.

The Asociación Española de Enfermería en Endoscopia Digestiva (AEEED)- Association of Digestive Endoscopy Nurses,- has recognised this course as “Activity promoting the development of scientific/technical training for endoscopy nurses”, following its recognition  in endoscopy, after analysing the documentation and considering that both the organisation and the proposed topics were coherent with the objective of interrelation and dissemination of knowledge expressed in the statutes of the AEEED.

MATACHANA, together with the Morales Meseguer Hospital, is pleased with the recognition received, highlighting the importance of the processes developed in the units of flexible reprocessing units and their crucial importance for patient safety.
