The risk of infection poses a significant risk to staff and others. Without effective infection prevention and control approaches, an infection can cause distress, harm, and impair the quality of life. Infection frequently requires additional costly resources to treat. Therefore, prevention of infection has to be a key priority for all staff. This 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.
