Educational sessions at the HSPA Annual Conference & Expo deliver a balanced mix of shorter micro-learning opportunities and longer deep dives into technical and professional development topics. Educational sessions cover broad industry topics that relate specifically to your healthcare facility and/or career goals.  There will be plenty of opportunities to network and compare notes with peers to keep the discussion going!

HSPA is currently seeking presentation proposals for lecture sessions, hands on labs, and interactive workshops for the 2023 Annual Conference. If you would like to share your expertise on a Sterile Processing-related topic, please click the link below:
