Why are infection control and prevention measures important? These measures aim to ensure the protection of those who might be vulnerable to acquiring an infection. At least 300,000 people every year develop a Health Care Associated Infection. This not only has a huge impact on the patient, but also on the staff and the institution it occurs in.
Patients will have better health and more independence where there is good infection prevention and control. This course begins 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, and lots more.
