A safe, efficient, quality-driven Central Sterile Supply Department cannot be had without a skilled and knowledgeable leader at the helm. Unfortunately, even the most seasoned CS veterans may lack the leadership training and skills required to make them fully confident and effective in that role.

To help bridge those gaps and give both current and future leaders the tools they need to succeed, IAHCSMM has developed the new Central Service Leadership Manual. This must-have educational resource will not only give CS professionals a solid foundation on leadership requirements, but will also provide specific, user-friendly tools and materials that can be immediately applied in their departments.

The 25-chapter Central Service Leadership Manual is the most comprehensive leadership resource available to date — written for CS leaders by CS leaders, with input from some of the most esteemed experts in the field.

The manual was designed for use in conjunction with the 7th Edition Central Service Technical Manual, and covers a wide range of topics, from employee coaching, technical essentials (such as steam sterilization) and purchasing/inventory management to legal considerations, regulatory requirements, resource management, effective communication, and much more!

(For every 10 books ordered, an additional 1 book will automatically be included, free of charge).
