What is the care certificate standard 15 – infection prevention & control?

Infection prevention and control is the discipline concerned with preventing nosocomial or healthcare-associated infection, a practical (rather than academic) sub-discipline of epidemiology. It is an essential, though often underrecognised and under-supported, part of the infrastructure of health care. Health and social care workers can take steps to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. These steps are part of infection prevention and control. Proper hand washing is the most effective way to prevent the spread of infections in hospitals.

Other preventive measures include standard precautions such as hand hygiene, PPE, injection safety, environmental cleaning, and respiratory hygiene/cough etiquette and transmission-based precautions (contact, droplet, and airborne).

Why is this care certificate standard 15 course important?

In general, health and safety is important because it protects the well being of employees, visitors and customers (patients and service users in health and social care settings). Looking after health and safety makes good business sense. Workplaces which neglect health and safety risk prosecution, may lose staff, and may increase costs and reduce profitability.

Infection prevention and control in the workplace aims to prevent pathogens being passed from one person to another. The foundation of good infection control is to assume that everyone is potentially infectious. Basic infection control procedures include hand washing and keeping the workplace clean. This comprehensive e-learning course provides all health and social care workers with the practical knowledge to effectively manage infections in the workplace.
