This course will provide therapists with the knowledge to deliver care safely and prevent the spread of infection. It is aimed at anyone working with clients, whether in health care settings or in a private practice.
During the course, we will cover:
The concept of microorganisms and infection and how simple precautions can protect both the therapist and the client.
The spread of disease in more detail, exploring how the use of protective clothing and other interventions can protect us when dealing with potential blood borne infections.
The work environment and equipment used and how we can ensure that it is safe.
Specific infections that pose a particular risk and methods to ensure their spread is limited, based on both local and national guidance.
