Central Service Leadership Manual

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.CHL Box Set 225.300

To help bridge those gaps and give both current and future leaders the tools they need to succeed, the International Association of Healthcare Central Service Materiel Management has developed the 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 IAHCSMM 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 more.

Central Service Leadership Boxed Course

Boxed set contains: one textbook and one workbook. The workbook includes chapter by chapter progress quizzes, as well as a final exam. The boxed course (with a textbook and workbook) is the key preparation tool for those studying to become a Certified Healthcare Leader (CHL). Please note: textbook and workbook can be sold separately, however, cost savings are received when purchased as a boxed course.

*Note: we also offer the option to purchase the Manual or Workbook separately.
