Course Description

The recent decades have seen significant improvements in mitigating healthcare-associated infections, once thought unimaginable, as was the case with MRSA bacteremia and Clostridium difficile. The shift from infection control being the domain of the infection control team to making infection prevention everyone’s responsibility, particularly nurses due to their proximity to patients, was a significant component of this success.

With the rise of nosocomial infections, the emergence of organisms resistant to antibiotics, and COVID-19, addressing healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) is a challenge that every nurse shall face. A well-conceived and carefully implemented infection control program will drastically reduce morbidity, prevent early death, and save money for the hospital/patient. Optimal infection prevention and control and consistent and reliable application of these principles have underpinned the success.

The Certificate in Infection Prevention and Control for Nurses outlines the basic tenets of infection prevention, surveillance principles, high standards of cleanliness, and aseptic technique when inserting, caring for invasive devices, etc.

The course’s blended learning design, which includes multiple case presentations, lectures, and interactive elements, provides you with a clinical perspective on the theory and, as a result, improves hygiene practices at your hospital.

Medvarsity strives to provide every healthcare professional with the capabilities they need to advance their careers and serve better the societies in which they practice.
