Infections can affect otherwise healthy individuals, especially if invasive procedures or devices are used and not only can patients of all ages be affected, their families, carers and other healthcare workers can also be affected. Certain actions can be taken in order to reduce the risk of the spread of infection and this programme has been designed to offer a thorough understanding of the topic of Infection Control and its impact on individuals and the organisations they work for.
The topics covered in this comprehensive course include:
- Micro-organisms and the Causes of Infection
- The Chain of Infection
- How Infection Spreads
- The Implications for the Workplace
- Personal health and hygiene
- Decontamination - Equipment and Environment
Infection control is everyone’s responsibility and whilst it can be a complex topic, this comprehensive programme offers a level of flexibility that means that you can complete all the component parts at times that are most convenient to you, whether you are fitting them in around work shifts or family commitments.
