Winter Seminar Attendees: Request Your CE Credit

If you attended ASCA’s 2018 Winter Seminars in Las Vegas, don’t forget to request continuing education (CE) credits. In order to obtain nursing contact hours, Administrator Education Units (AEUs) or a certificate of participation, you must complete a session evaluation. The evaluations must be completed by February 28, 2018.


Overview: Protect your patients and your ASC with this state-of-the-art investigation into best practices in sterilization, instrument reprocessing and the policies and procedures you need to prevent infections in your ASC. Get practical how-to advice for sustaining a comprehensive infection prevention program into the future.

In 2018, the Board of Ambulatory Surgery Certification (BASC) will introduce the new Certified Ambulatory Infection Preventionist (CAIP)™ credential, the first certification designed specifically for infection preventionists working in the ASC industry. If you are interested in taking the new CAIP™ exam, this seminar will provide contact hours in infection prevention that can be counted towards the exam’s eligibility requirements.
