Dr. Mark Stibich, co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Xenex, will present a workshop “No-Touch Disinfection: The New Frontier in Patient Safety” during the conference, where he will review current methods for no-touch disinfection for the hospital environment with a focus on evidence for clinical outcomes.

“Antibiotic resistance and HAIs are real threats today – in the UK and around the world. But when you remove the pathogens from the patient environment, infections and antibiotic use are reduced. We want hospital professionals to understand best practices for implementing UV disinfection in their facilities to stop the transmission of HAIs and enhance patient safety,” said Dr. Stibich.
