The Theoretical Framework for Clinical Practice teaches the essential principles and process of aseptic practice by the unique approach of ANTT. It is intended for all clinical procedures...‘From surgery to community care’.

Compliance to the guidelines is established organisation wide by the ANTT Implementation Audit Cycle.
