Infection Control

Health care associated infections occur over 300,000 times a year and result in poorer health for patients and cause significant strain on the services offered. Infection prevention and control aims to protect those who may be susceptible to acquiring an infection and where it does occur, control the spread of that infection.

Over this course we will define infection prevention and control and discuss the effects of both good and bad infection control. We’ll discuss in detail the legislation that applies to infection control, different types of microorganisms that can cause infection, how bacteria is transmitted, the chain of infection and more. By the end of the course you’ll be fully equipped to implement great infection control and handle any incident that may arise.
