Course aims and objectives

Awareness of infection prevention and control measures is essential for all healthcare and social care professionals. This includes understanding the standard precautions such as hand hygiene, personal protective equipment (PPE), injection safety, environmental cleaning, and respiratory hygiene/cough etiquette and transmission-based precautions (contact, droplet, and airborne).

They are the basic level of infection control precautions which are to be used, as a minimum, in the care of all patients and service users. Hand hygiene is a significant component of standard precautions and one of the most effective methods to prevent transmission of pathogens associated with health care. This online Care Certificate Standard 15 (Infection Prevention and Control) training course provides a comprehensive and interactive e-learning package to gain a full understanding of infection prevention and control in health and social care sectors. 

Learning outcomes

After completing our Care Certificate Standard 15 (Infection Prevention and Control) e-learning course, you will be able to:

  • Understand basic microbiology,
  • Understand how micro-organisms are spread,
  • Understand standard infection control precautions,
  • Know the importance of correct hand hygiene technique,
  • Be prepared to describe what MRSA, clostridium difficile (CDI) and norovirus are, and understand their impact in health and social care, and
  • Know what precautions are necessary to prevent and control HCAIs.

Why is this Care Certificate Standard 15 (Infection Prevention and Control) course important?

In general, health and safety is essential because it protects the well being of employees, visitors and customers (patients and service users in health and social care settings). Looking after health and safety makes good business sense. Workplaces which neglect health and safety risk prosecution may lose staff and may increase costs and reduce profitability.

Infection prevention and control in the workplace aims to prevent pathogens from being passed from one person to another. The foundation of good infection control is to assume that everyone is potentially infectious. Basic infection control procedures include hand washing and keeping the workplace clean. This comprehensive e-learning course provides all health and social care workers with practical knowledge to effectively manage infections in the workplace.
