Central Service Leadership Manual

Today’s Sterile Processing (SP) leaders require a foundation of management and business information to address their non-technical responsibilities and they must also have the knowledge to manage highly technical processes and address commonly asked questions about them. The completely revised Central Service Leadership Manual, Third Edition, will be an asset for every SP leader and department.

Welcome to Healthcare Leadership

3rd Edition Leadership Manual

Sterile Processing (SP) leaders hold incredibly demanding positions within their healthcare facilities. Responsibilities include staff recruitment and training, managing day-to-day operations, and compliance with regulations, standards and guidelines. HSPA’s Central Service Leadership Manual, Third Edition, addresses those skills by providing a comprehensive discussion of leadership while also covering a broad understanding of SP-related science. Additional concentration areas covered include safety/disaster preparedness, construction projects, work areas and workflow, and departmental efficiency initiatives. It’s important for all SP professionals to learn that the choices they make and the processes they develop and follow can literally result in life or death patient outcomes as well as staff safety issues. The Central Service Leadership Manual will assist in guiding those important decisions.

This resource is available as a stand-alone manual and workbook—or for greater savings, it can be combined into a boxed course (includes both the manual and workbook).
