As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to affect all our lives and businesses, we are working hard to support you in a variety of ways and hopefully you will have seen the guidance we have been sending out over the last month.
In addition to our current portfolio of highly respected Highfield e-learning courses we are now able to offer the newly updated Infection Prevention and Control + New COVID-19 Module.
Priced at £5.00 plus VAT each (minimum order size 10) the Infection Prevention and Control course is designed to help you and your business understand how to prevent and control infection and why it is important to do so.
The course begins by teaching the different pathogens that cause infection. It then outlines how infections occur, the factors that can make a person more vulnerable to infection and the steps you can take to prevent infections from occurring. Learn how your own health and hygiene could pose a risk to people that you care and support for and understand the procedures that should be followed to reduce risks when dealing with hazardous spills, waste and linen.
Finally, you will learn about the legal requirements relating to infection prevention and control, and your and other people’s responsibilities.

What is Infection Prevention and Control?
Infection Prevention and Control is a practical solution, based on a scientific approach, to prevent the harm caused by infection. Infections and infectious diseases are a major cause of illness and death. Infectious diseases can spread. As with all illnesses, prevention is better than cure.

The course may be particularly useful for healthcare professionals and adult care workers and may be particularly useful for apprentices. The course can be used as a stand-alone module or as part of an induction programme.
