oneSOURCE Announces Free Access to Continuing Education Course Aligned with Accreditation Standards

This week, oneSOURCE announced a partnership with Pfiedler Education, a subsidiary of AORN Inc., to offer free access to a webinar course from sterile processing expert Rose Seavey. This course will focus on effective tools to help pass accreditation surveys and allow healthcare professionals to receive 2.0 continuing education credits in multiple areas including HLD, sterilization, and implants and tissue management.

“Authoritative entities, like the Joint Commission and AAMI, have increasingly updated their requirements for maintaining accreditation for healthcare professionals to ensure patient safety. These compliance mandates can often be met by pursuing continuing education credits in a number of disciplines, including infection prevention and sterile processing,” said Heather Thomas, CMO & Executive Vice President Sales & Marketing. “With over 40 years in this field, Rose is well appointed to lead this course and we couldn’t be more excited to have her involved in this capacity.”

By partnering with Pfiedler Education, the CE course will allow healthcare professionals to access free instructional programming to help uphold the guidelines instituted by the governing bodies. The course will be available for two years to oneSOURCE clients and other medical professionals on the oneSOURCE and Pfiedler Education websites. The CE course is an adaptation of Seavey’s presentation on completing the accreditation survey. To receive credit, the participants will have to pass a quiz upon completion.

“With the world embracing a digital landscape now more than ever, the breadth of accessible options that can be offered through this partnership is incredibly beneficial,” said Rose Seavey, MBA, BS, RN, CNOR, CRCST, CSPDT. “Continuing education is a necessity in the healthcare industry, with almost all medical professionals required to partake in some level of the re-accreditation process. Infection prevention is a shared responsibility and I feel honored to provide this critical knowledge to our industry in such an accessible way. Risk reduction and process improvement are at the heart and soul of accreditation surveys and participants of this course will be able to develop a template for how to be prepared for your next accreditation survey.”

oneSOURCE’s dedication to continuing to provide the proper tools to promote the highest level of patient safety is evident through this collaboration. With databases that focus on global pandemics, facilities maintenance, tissues and implants and other integral compliance fields, oneSOURCE continues to be a reliable resource for top healthcare organizations such as Mayo Clinic, Sutter Health, VHA and HCA and currently dominates the sterile processing market with more than 80 percent saturation.
