Course overview

No-one likes getting sick. You get that icky, not-right feeling, and you know you could be in for a few days shivering in bed, needing endless supplies of tissues and cough medicine. You wouldn’t wish it on anyone, and you’d likely tell people to stay away so they didn’t catch your bug.

But in healthcare settings, it’s impossible to isolate everyone all the time, so infections can cause big problems. It’s likely there’ll be people around for whom catching any bug could have very serious health consequences. So, it’s vital that all healthcare settings implement effective Infection Prevention & Control (IPC) measures.
