Not all infections are transmissible but some, such as C. difficile, influenza and norovirus have the potential to spread from one patient to another, causing infection. This has additional significant implications for healthcare organisations, facilities or nursing homes. Understanding how infections occur and how different micro-organisms act and spread is crucial to preventing infections. As nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants, prevention is our primary aim.
The Infection Control Training Course aims to provide delegates with the knowledge and skills required to control and prevent the transmission of infection and contamination in a care environment and designed for anyone who works within a healthcare setting.
