Monash Medical Centre instrument technician Karl Muller has won a trip to a prestigious international sterilising conference.
Karl won by completing an online educational package and submitting an essay discussing the new AS/NZ 4187 Australian standards and its relationship to Sterilising Services.
The contest is organised by the Halyard Education Foundation, an online program exclusively designed for Australian and New Zealand Central Sterile Services Departments (CSSD) and provides a series of courses to keep CSSD professionals at the forefront of best practice and industry trends.
Karl’s prize is a trip to the 20th World Sterilization Congress 2019 in Hague, the Netherlands later this month.
The congress will focus on sharing knowledge on each level of sterilization from scientific research, to practical cases for technicians.
Manager of the Sterilising Services Units at Monash Health Fiona ten Berk de Boer said “I am sure Karl will bring back lots of information for not only Clayton but sterilising services across the network. Karl has been a senior member of the Sterilising Service Unit since January 2017 and actively participates in education and training of the team and ensuring a strong customer focus to all our user groups across Monash Medical Centre Clayton.”
