Infection Control Course Overview:

Infection prevention and control measures aim to ensure the protection of those who might be vulnerable to acquiring an infection. Ok, but why is this important?

Well every year at least 300,000 people develop a Health Care Associated Infection. This has a huge impact on the patient, the staff and the institution it occurs in. Whereas if there is good infection prevention and control, patients will have better health and more independence.

This Infection Control E-Learning course will start by defining infection prevention and control and explaining the impact of good and bad infection control. It then goes into detail about, the legislation that applies to infection control, the different types of microorganisms, how bacteria are transmitted, the chain of infection, and much more.
