New course: Infection Prevention and Control in Education

New course: Infection Prevention and Control in Education

EduCare is delighted to announce that we have launched a new course to support schools as they prepare for the return of all pupils, in partnership with School And Public Health Nurses Association (SAPHNA).

Infection prevention and control

Schools are common sites for the transmission of infections, and everyone who works in them has a duty of care to their colleagues, and the students in their care, to reduce this risk. As more of your staff and students return to their classrooms, it has never been more important to ensure that everyone is up-to-date with the principles and practice of infection prevention and control, and that’s where our course, Infection Prevention and Control in Education, can help.

An infection occurs when harmful micro-organisms (germs) enter the body and start to multiply. Eventually, there will be so many of them that they will cause an infection. Everyone who works in an education setting has a duty of care towards their colleagues and the children and young people in their care to prevent infection and control it should it occur.

How we can help?

  • Learn how infections are transmitted and the steps you can take to prevent this happening
  • Discover measures to control infection should it occur

Written in partnership with the School and Public Health Nurses Association (SAPHNA), Infection Prevention and Control in Education is split into two modules with multiple choice questionnaires. Module one covers the chain of infection, defences against infection and sepsis. Module two explores ways to break the chain, including hand and respiratory hygiene, social distancing, personal protective equipment (PPE), cleaning and disinfection and waste.

This course covers 

  • Identifying different types of micro-organisms and which infections they cause
  • Understanding the chain of infection
  • Signs and symptoms of infections and how to reduce the spread
  • Understanding the means and reducing the risk of transmission
