Course Aims

All staff working in health and social care should be trained in Infection Control, to have an understanding of how infections can easily be transmitted and put people at risk.

Infection control is a mandatory training course for all staff that directly support vulnerable individuals and should be completed before supporting any individual in a professional capacity.

This training applies to all health and social care workers that work in settings such as Care Homes, Hospital Wards, Day Centres, or supporting an individual in their own home.

It is designed to give social care workers the underpinning knowledge and requirements needed when working in a professional setting and also includes information and resources for coronavirus: COVID-19.
