I really was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this course. I selected it because it is a topic we should review every few years, I did not expect to enjoy it and feel like I have a handy reference guide to go to with the charts in the course material. Excellent!

Practical information for safety of the client and massage therapist.
William E. Laquale, NCTMB
I loved this course! It was a good refresher course for how diseases are spread, but what I found fascinating in the chapter on "Specific Communicable Disease". The visuals in the hand washing protocol are excellent. It was very helpful to learn the "Therapeutic Actions" that I can apply to my practice. Also the "Recommended Resources for Further Study" at the end are excellent sources to expand on the subject matter.

It is important to note that pathogens travel both ways, so both the client and/or the therapist can transmit pathogens to each other unless appropriate precautions are maintained. In order to prevent the spread of communicable diseases, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has issued a set of guidelines, called Standard Precautions, which outlines requirements that all health care personnel must follow. Standard Precautions synthesize the major features of Universal Precautions (UP) and Blood Stream Infections (BSI), which were earlier and less inclusive precautionary measures."
