Infection Control in Healthcare Facilities

About This Course

“Health care-associated infections (HAIs) are one of the frequently encountered patient safety incidents in care delivery and poses a major public health challenge impacting on morbidity, mortality and quality of life. The prevalence of HAIs in mixed patient populations of low to middle income countries (like South Africa) is approximately twice that of high-income countries. These infections also present a significant economic burden at the societal and health facility level. Effective infection prevention and control (IPC) programmes have been proven to be one of the cornerstones for combating HAIs and antimicrobial resistance (AMR)” Dr T Pillay (acting Director-General: Health. March, 2022)

As you can see from this quote, it is possible to prevent HAIs through infection prevention and control (IPC) programmes. This course will explain these IPCs in a lot more detail and aims to equip healthcare professionals with standard infection prevention control measures, to prevent the outbreak and spread of infections in Health facilities in South Africa.

The MANCOSA skillME Infection Control in Healthcare Facilities short learning programme (SLP) has been developed by industry experts to provide healthcare professionals with a robust understanding of how to develop and implement standard infection prevention control measures, to prevent the outbreak and spread of infections in South African healthcare facilities.
