Infection Control & Prevention - Non Clinical

Everyone has a role to play in the prevention and control of healthcare-associated infection (HCAI). Learners can explore the effects of healthcare-associated infections, how they are spread and how to help to prevent the spread of infection.

Overview

Infection prevention and control is now a major priority for the health sector. This course has been developed for all non-clinical staff working in the health sector, to ensure that we all share the same understanding and good practice in this area.


Modules include:

  • Session 1: Introduction to Infection Prevention
  • Session 2: Infection Prevention in Practice

What will learners get out of it?
  • Ability to describe and explain the consequences of healthcare-associated infections (HCAI) and how they spread
  • Describe the impact healthcare-associated infections have on patients and your duty of care to patients
  • Describe how hand hygiene, personal protective equipment management of blood, body fluids, sharps, the environment and care equipment helps prevent the spread of infection

Skills for Health have now developed a Primary care version of this course with learning scenarios and assessments adapted to the needs of GPs and other primary care organisations. If you wish to order the primary care version, please request this in the order notes.

Who is the course for?

This course is aimed at all non-clinical staff such as healthcare assistants who are new to the role, porters, administrative staff, receptionists, laundry and cleaning staff, carers and volunteers whether directly employed within the healthcare sector or employed by a contractor.

More experienced healthcare assistants may want to consider completing the Infection Prevention and Control for Clinical Staff course which is more detailed.

Assessment

The modules are followed by a multiple choice assessment designed to test learners’ understanding of the course. Learning progress and test results can be tracked by managers for internal development and learners can keep a certificate of completion for CPD. Skills For Health Elearning modules now include stand-alone E-assessments. This means that learners who believe they already have the necessary knowledge of the subject area can complete an assessment without having to complete the training.
