Overview

CPD Certified - on average contributes 2 hours towards your CPD.

Rising levels of health care associated infection (HCAI) have gained prominence in the media and in politics, leading to great public concern. All NHS organisations are required to put infection control and basic hygiene at the heart of good management and clinical practice. All healthcare workers have a duty of care to their patients and preventing infection forms part of that duty of care.

Infection Control is targeted primarily at healthcare workers in NHS organisations, though the information is applicable to anyone working in the healthcare sector in general.

Upon completion of the Infection Control online material, undertake an online assessment which will check your understanding. If you achieve the pass mark you will be sent a Virtual College Certificate.

The content of this course has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines.

Infection Control was written by experts on the Infection Control team within Bradford City and South & West PCT.
