I WORKSHOP ON STERILIZATION IN VALLÉS ORIENTAL, GRANOLLERS-BARCELONA:
On 14 November, the 1st Vallés Oriental Sterilization Conference was held in the Aula Magna of the "edificio del conocimiento" building of the Granollers General Hospital. More than 75 health professionals, mainly Nursing Auxiliary Care Technicians (TCAE), participated in this event. During the morning, 3 round tables were organised to deal with the following topics: the invasion of technological change in sterilization centrals, the appearance of new technologies in these units and a last block related to new trends in training. In this last table, Mrs. Elena Lorenzo, MIEC Manager of the company MATACHANA, gave an interesting lecture on "The obligations of manufacturers in the training of personnel of Reprocessing Units for Medical Devices".
The day generated a very fruitful debate between attendees and speakers, claiming the fundamental role that the Nursing Auxiliary Care Technicians play in these services and the immediate need for their labor recognition, as well as the creation of a specific training module for these professionals of the future, more and more in demand.
MATACHANA would like to congratulate the organizing committee, as well as Sra. Sara López, President of the AAES for the coordination and success of these conferences, which are 100% focused on the perspective of the staff working in the RUMED.
