The spread of infection within healthcare practices is a constant concern, making effective infection control training a priority for all clinical and non-clinical healthcare employees. The primary goal of infection control training within the NHS is to highlight the importance of infection prevention procedures, and the impact of healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs).
Learners will develop an understanding of how HCAIs can spread, and their duty of care as a healthcare professional to prevent this. This includes safe handling of sharps, sterilisation procedures for equipment and the surrounding environment, and the management of body fluids and blood.
Infection control training for health also explains the importance of hand hygiene, and details the various personal protective equipment required in various situations. These infection control elearning packages, face-to-face courses and additional resources also include self-assessment modules, so your team can double-check that their understanding of the subject is sufficient.
