Course on Central Sterile Services

The Central Sterile Services Department (CSSD) is at the core of the hospital; it’s the place where most of the vital instruments are sterilized and reprocessed. Yet, very few formal training programs are being conducted in this crucial area. With this in view, CARE Nampally has started a 1-month, part-time certification course in CSSD, in collaboration with the Indian Association of Medical Microbiologists (IAMM), Infection Control Academy of India (IFCAI) and Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI). The first course was conducted from 20th May to 18th June with 45 participants from corporate hospitals in both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. A book has been compiled on CSSD which was well appreciated by the participants.
