Infection Prevention and Control – for Health and…

Infection Prevention and Control – for Health and Social Care

If you’re working with adults who may be ill or vulnerable to infection then you need to be particularly vigilant in infection control. But why is infection control important? NICE (The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) estimates that 300,000 patients a year in England acquire a healthcare-associated infection as a result of care within the NHS.

Infection control in hospitals and care homes is therefore critical: it harms patients who are already vulnerable and costs healthcare institutions too.

Topics surrounding health and safety are often overlooked, and not many take the time to take control of their well-being, especially in the workplace.

We offer a total of 14 courses, and while some are geared specifically towards individuals working in specific industries (the food industry or the medical industry, for example), others cover broader ideas like stress in the workplace, first aid, and basic life support. Our selection of health and safety courses can offer essential training for those hoping to gain a better understanding of what’s needed to feel happy, healthy, secure and comfortable in emergency situations at work.

We offer a variety of Food Safety and Hygiene courses for those preparing to work within the food industry, and refresher courses for those already working regularly with food. Whether working in a restaurant, hotel, cafe, bar or running a catering business of your own, your first order of business should be to understand how to handle food properly.

While this might sound simple, there’s a lot of ground to cover when it comes to food prep. In order to become a trusted source for your customers, our e-training courses will provide you with the right knowledge to start your (or continue) your career on the right path.

With a selection of five courses (Food Safety & Hygiene Essentials, Food Safety and Hygiene Level 2, Control of Substances Hazardous to Health, Food Allergy Awareness, and Fluids and Nutrition – for Health and Social Care), you’ll be able to cover all the bases needed to succeed within the food industry, including food prep, food safety, food hygiene and food allergies.

For those working as part of a health and social care team, we recommend taking a look at some of our more specific courses within this category to make sure you’re doing everything you can to be an exceptional member of staff and take care of your patients as best you can.

Our Infection Prevention and Control course is a three module course in which you’ll learn what causes illness and what you can do to minimise the risk of infections, focusing specifically on effective hand hygiene, the use of Personal Protective Equipment and how to safely handle infection or soiled linen and clinical waste. If you’re working with adults who may be ill or particularly vulnerable to infections, this course will teach you how to be vigilant in preventing the spread of an illness.

Another course that will be of interest to healthcare and social care professionals is our Medication Awareness and Safe Handling of Medicines course. Many rely on their medication on a daily, weekly or monthly basis and it’s a crucial part of their health and wellbeing, so it’s important to have an understanding of how to manage this process. Whether you’re a carer in domiciliary settings, in a care home, or a manager of care providers – this course will be important for you to take on. Family members who want to understand more about the safe handling on medication for those they’re taking care of will also find good value in this course.

Regardless of what industry you’re currently working in (and the day-to-day responsibilities that come with it), we think there’s great value in getting some basic health and safety training under your belt. In addition to the courses mentioned above, we also provide basic training to ensure you’ll be able to step up at work in an emergency situation, if need be.

With courses like Basic Life Support, First Aid, Medication Awareness and Safe Handling of Medicines and Fire Safety Awareness, you’ll reach a heightened sense of security and also be given the tools needed to help others with their health and safety with confidence.
