CDC and the American College of Surgeons will cosponsor a conference, "Prevention of Transmission of Bloodborne Pathogens in Surgery and Obstetrics," February 13-15, 1994, in Atlanta. The conference will provide information about the risk for transmission of bloodborne pathogens, including human immunodeficiency virus and hepatitis B and C viruses, during surgical and obstetric procedures and describe methods to reduce that risk.

Abstracts will be accepted on the following topics: risk for transmission of bloodborne pathogens to health-care workers and patients in surgical and obstetric suites; new devices, techniques, and personal-protection equipment that decrease occupational exposure in surgical and obstetric suites; additional prevention measures (e.g., vaccination and postexposure management); and methods to conduct and evaluate studies of risk and prevention measures. The deadline for receipt of abstracts is October 31, 1993.
