About 300,000 patients develop an infection in England each year while being treated by the NHS. Protecting people from infection is a really important part of providing high-quality care, especially as some life-threatening infections can spread easily within care environments. In this course, you will gain the skills you need to tackle the risk of infection in your workplace.

The course covers procedures and regulations surrounding infection control, as well as the importance of maintaining a clean environment. As of 2020 this course has been updated to include knowledge of Covid-19.
