Prevention and Control of Infection

Prevention and Control of Infection

Course overview:

Every year one in 10 hospital patients develop a Healthcare Associated Infection during their stay in a UK hospital. Approximately 5000 patients die as a direct result of one of these infections and they also play a part in 15,000 other deaths in the UK every year.

In most cases, these infections are difficult to treat and can complicate previous illnesses that a patient has, as well as causing distress for the individual and their family.

Taking this qualification can help tackle the outbreak of infection in hospitals and health care settings by helping you understand the causes and spread of infection and how you can help to control it.
