More than 10 years after the passage of the Needlestick Prevention and Safety Act phlebotomy procedures still pose significant needlestick risks for healthcare workers. A free webinar for nursing staff will discuss “the most recent needlestick injury data and nurses’ rights under current laws/regulations, as well as provide a review of available safety-engineered technologies and the benefits and limitations of each class of devices.”

Sponsored by Advance for Nurses and BD, Reducing Needlestick Injury During Phlebotomy is Wednesday, June 13, 2012 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT.

Presenters for the program are Janine Jagger, MPH, PhD, director of the International Healthcare Worker Safety Center and Anita Yanik, MSN, RN, is a care consultant for BD Diagnostics – Preanalytical Systems.

The presentation will include a Q&A session and offer CE credit.
