Learning Outcomes

  • Know common diseases and the chain of infection.
  • Understand standard infection control procedures.
  • Know how to apply standard infection control procedures.
  • Know the correct management of spills.
  • Know how to manage waste correctly.
  • Understand roles and responsibilities in preventing infection.

We recommend the following refresher periods for Infection Control and Prevention training: Clinical staff should have an update every year, non-clinical every 2 years.

If staff can demonstrate through a formal assessment they have retained the knowledge covered by the learning outcomes and can apply them in their role, this will be sufficient for their refresher training. If staff can not demonstrate this they will need to repeat the full training.

If there has been a change in Infection Control and Prevention Legislation nationally or an organisation has amended its policy locally, staff will need to receive an update to reflect any changes.
