Event description

Description

This course thoroughly explores those aspects of infection prevention and control where engineering criteria are a vital component. It includes sessions on specialist ventilation such as that of operating theatres, thermal (surgical instrument) and chemical (endoscope) washer disinfectors, steam sterilisers, healthcare laundry and other aspects of hospital hygiene and decontamination. These are supplemented by discussion sessions, which put the engineering concepts into the context of practical infection control.

Learning objectives:

Delegates will learn to assess areas where engineering controls have a significant impact on preventing infection transmission in healthcare. You will gain an understanding of relevant processes as they relate to infection prevention, as well as an ability to communicate and negotiate effectively with engineers and Estates staff.

Who should attend: The course content is designed to meet the needs of Consultant Medical Microbiologists, Trainee Medical Microbiologists about to take Consultant roles, senior Infection Prevention & Control Nurses and others with practical aspects of infection prevention as their role.

The venue is Eastwood Park Training Centre, near Bristol, a uniquely-equipped specialist training centre for healthcare engineering.

In 2017, the course was accredited with 30 RCPath CPD credits. Accreditation will be sought for the 2018 courses. The full programme will be available shortly.
