Content

Designed to meet the needs of healthcare professionals and nurses working anywhere in the world, whether you’re relatively new to infection prevention and control or have just moved into a leadership role and would like to boost your qualification. Our course is flexible and you can study whenever or wherever you want.

With the pandemic of COVID-19 announced in March 2020, it has become more apparent than ever that we need to develop skills around outbreak investigation and management. This is one of many topics covered in our online course and you will be able to develop and enhance your skills in this alongside other practice areas such as:

applied microbiology; decontamination; antimicrobial resistance; antimicrobial stewardship;
infection prevention and control practice

We have renowned clinical experts contributing to our modules who will also support your learning alongside academic staff. As leaders in their field who are still practicing clinically, you will benefit from being able to engage and interact with them in specific modules.

After Stage 1 you can exit with PgCert Infection: Prevention and Control.

After Stage 2 you can exit with PgDip Infection: Prevention and Control.
