dc.description.abstract In medical practice, unfamiliarity with procedures increases the likelihood of occupational exposures.  Learning to perform a procedure properly early on reinforces safe habits, improves overall surgical safety, and reduces occupational exposures.   Safety in Office-Based Dermatologic Surgery is relevant to any healthcare professional who participates in office-based procedures, such as injections, biopsies, excisions, and laser surgery.  The authors bring over 15 years’ combined experience in training residents and medical students, enabling them to identify common unsafe practices in office-based surgery.  Chapters are divided into individual procedures for easy referencing by students, trainees, as well as seasoned practitioners. Figures illustrate how seemingly innocuous actions and procedures can result in dangerous exposures to healthcare workers. Hazardous scenarios are subsequently followed with one or a series of safer solutions, with the accident and solution concisely explained and clearly illustrated.
