What is this course about?
In any care environment, the risk of infection can be high, so it is important for infection control measures to be in place and followed effectively. Your risk assessment will have shaped your policies and procedures and aligned to the current guidance. Your staff have a responsibility to follow the policies and procedures to help keep everyone in your care environment safe. Part of the current CQC inspection process will look at what procedures you have in place and how you are implementing them, both to prevent and deal with infection in the workplace.
This remote face to face session will allow your staff to explore best practice around your infection control policies and procedures. The course content has been designed to be delivered in 1 hour, but we have the ability to be slightly flexible with the finish time to make sure all relevant content is covered. The session is designed for (up to) 9 candidates, so will fit easily around your staff rota. Call us today for more information.
