Reusable vs Disposable Medical PPE Round Table

Join the discussion to evaluate the pros and cons of transitioning to reusable PPE solutions.

Help to reduce waste and give resilience to future supply.

The pandemic highlighted the problems in relying on single-use medical PPE. It is riskier in terms of security of supply, whilst adding significantly to textile pollution.

Procurement teams for healthcare organisations must consider its responsibility to ensure resilient PPE sourcing operations and the impact on net zero strategies. Shifting mindsets to consider total contract costs over unit costs will expand what’s possible.

Reusable vs Disposable Medical PPE

The PCIAW® Round Table Series on ‘Reusable vs Disposable Medical PPE’ will connect key stakeholders from healthcare organisations and the supply chain to debate the pros and cons of using reusable medical PPE and the operational barriers that need to be overcome to facilitate a transition to a circular model.

Medical PPE can be enhanced with antiviral technologies, whilst utilising designs that improve fit, comfort and performance to better serve the front-line workers that save lives every day. The commodity-based purchasing model is simpler than the service-based model for reusable solutions, however over the contract term, reusable solutions can be more cost-effective and better protect nurses, doctors and care home workers.
