International Infection Prevention Week 19 – 23 October 2015

Megan Reilly

This week is International Infection Prevention Week. The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care has developed an Infection Prevention and Control Orientation Package for Health Care Workers.

This online orientation module is designed to be used by health service organisations (HSO) as part orientation programs for the workforce in infection prevention and control.

The module contains three levels that reflect the variation in risk of exposure to blood and body substances that different roles may have and users should choose the content that best reflects that level of risk.

The flexible learning style allows for health care workers to complete the module at their own pace.
