Corporate Presentations. Annual Scientific Meeting 2019

The Annual Scientific Meeting has been arranged at the Worsley Marriott Hotel, near Manchester from the 1st to 2nd April 2019.

Worsley Park Marriott and Country Park Hotel
Walkden Road
Worsley, M28 2QT
Tel No’ 0161 975 2011

The CSC committee have put together a programme which we hope will be of considerable interest to all
members and this can be viewed on the CSC website: https://centralsterilisingclub.org/ As in previous
years, the meeting gives our Corporate Members an opportunity to make a presentation to the audience.
Four such presentations are allocated in the programme.

Whilst not wishing to prescribe content it is our advice that these presentations work best when
introducing innovations in techniques, research or development work. Straightforward commercial
presentations tend not to work so well.

Where we have more than four possible presentations the committee reserves the right to select those
they think most appropriate. If your company is interested in presenting, a brief paragraph on the content
would help the committee make this decision.

These should be sent to me by email in the first instance by the 8th January 2019 and we will confirm your place by the 31st January 2019.

The club makes a charge of £750 for the presentation slot. Corporate members presenting have a two day
delegate fee gratis to cover attendance at the event (no accommodation included).
Corporate Members taking advantage of the opportunity must be fully paid up for the 2018/19 year.

Best wishes

John Prendergast
CSC Treasurer


Central Sterilising Club Events

May Study Day

Our chosen theme is:

Our next event will be the CSC Study Day at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens on 17th September 2018.   

“What could possibly go wrong?  Lessons to be learned in Decontamination! 

This is an excellent learning opportunity for all those involved in decontamination from hands-on operatives, decontamination managers, infection prevention practitioners and associated professionals to extend their knowledge and improve practice.

We are currently planning the program of speakers which we intend to publish at the end of the May. 

The content will be focused on:

  • real life experiences
  • describing the problem
  • how it was managed
  • the people involved
  • the process followed to achieve a satisfactory outcome
  • whether those involved would have approached their challenge differently with hindsight

We are seeking to include information on a recommended way to approach problem solving in healthcare.

This will include:

  • how to define what issues might be evident in certain situations
  • how to determine a critical path to determine the root cause
  • to take corrective action

We know from our own experiences that many of us working across the healthcare sector, face the same or similar challenges, however often do not have the opportunity from learning from each other. 

We hope this Study day will be a catalyst for change in practice to avoid similar mistakes being made by individuals and organisations but more importantly to develop an understanding of what went wrong and how solutions were reached. 

By holding this event it is also hoped that this can begin a process of sharing common challenges faced in our daily working lives such that continuous improvements can be made to patient safety.
