Glossary of Sterilising Terminology

A glossary is included in each student’s learning pack from the Open Polytechnic. This glossary is an A5 size booklet containing common terminology and its meaning as it relates to sterilising.

The NZSSA is pleased to advise that this booklet is now available for purchase for $10. If you would like one for your service contact Alison Stewart, NZSSA Treasurer and keep your unit up to date with current terminology.
