About the Course

This course has been designed to help you understand the purpose and principles of infection control and the procedures, such as risk assessments, as well as how regulations inform policy and practice.

About 300,000 patients develop an infection in England each year while being treated by the NHS. Protecting people from infection is an essential element of providing high-quality care, especially considering the capacity some potentially life-threatening infections have to spread within care environments.

You will gain an understanding of the roles, responsibilities, principles and processes in relation to cleaning, decontamination and waste management, the sterilisation process, and the importance of maintaining a clean environment. In addition, you will also learn practical skills, such as how to safely handle laundry and how to safely handle sharps.

What Will I Study?

Topics covered can include:

  • Principles of the Causes and Spread of Infection in Health Care Settings
  • Principles of the Importance of Personal Hygiene and Health in the Prevention and Control of Infection in Health Care Settings
  • Principles of Decontamination, Cleaning and Waste Management in Health Care Settings
  • Principles of Infection Prevention and Control in a Health Care Setting

What Will I Need?

You will need to be eligible to study in the UK. Upon enrolment, you will be asked to upload residency and income documents for college funding purposes.

What Can I Do After?

Upon successful completion of the course you will achieve a nationally-recognised qualification, which can help you progress into further study in this area.
