Why is this Infection Prevention and Control - Level 2 course important?

The risk of infection within a healthcare setting poses a significant risk to patients, carers and staff. Without effective infection prevention and control approaches, infection can cause distress, harm, and impair the quality of life and healthcare experiences. Infection frequently requires additional costly resources to treat. Therefore, prevention of infection has to be a key priority for all staff groups working within a healthcare setting. Consequently, ensuring that all staff have high levels of infection prevention and control awareness, supported through an effective education and training approach, should form a central feature of any infection prevention and control strategy.

Infection control is the discipline concerned with preventing nosocomial or healthcare-associated infection, a practical (rather than academic) sub-discipline of epidemiology. It is an essential, though often under-recognised and under-supported, part of the infrastructure of health care.

Infection control in the workplace aims to prevent pathogens 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 and include standard precautions such as:

  • Hand hygiene,
  • Personal protective equipment (PPE),
  • Injection safety,
  • Environmental cleaning,
  • Respiratory hygiene/cough etiquette, and
  • Transmission-based precautions (e.g. contact, droplet, and airborne).

Hand washing is the most important procedure in the prevention and minimisation of the spread of infection within health care settings. Gloves are worn as a barrier to protect the wearer's hands from contamination or to prevent the transfer of organisms already on the hands.
