The avoidance of infection outbreak and management to reduce its reach are high priority in any sector, but particularly when your work environment involves caring for some of the most vulnerable members of the community.
The right knowledge and practical skills are needed to protect those in your care from infection, and ensure that the outbreak’s risk of spreading is minimised. Our new short course is designed to build those very skills and enable your team to control infection in aged care. This nationally recognised training unit Comply with infection prevention and control policies and procedures (HLTINF001) has been developed with the needs of the aged care and community care sectors at front of mind.
Training to enhance your team and standard of care
Infection control and prevention are imperative in aged care settings, where residents may be at higher risk as a result of being older, having been in hospital or living with disease and/or illness (Australian Department of Health).
Relevant and practical training has never been more important to the aged care industry, as we focus on upholding high standards of person-centred care across the sector. Short courses such as our latest offering provide a productive form of training that enables you to retain, develop and empower your staff, while lifting the overall standard of care your aged care business delivers.
