Welcome to our online Infection Control in Health and Care training course for front-line healthcare and social care providers. All our online training courses, programmes and qualifications are accredited by the CPD Certification Service (CPDUK).

The risk of infection within a health/social care setting poses a significant risk to patients, carers and staff. Without effective infection prevention and control approaches, an infection can cause distress, harm, and impair the quality of life and healthcare experiences.

Infection frequently requires additional costly resources to treat. Therefore, prevention of infection has to be a key priority for all staff groups working within a healthcare setting. Consequently, ensuring that all staff have high levels of infection prevention and control awareness, supported through an adequate education and training approach, should form a central feature of any infection prevention and control strategy.

Learning Objectives

Infection Control in Health and Care - Online Learning Courses - E-Learning Courses - LearnPac Systems UK -

Course aims

The aims and objectives of this online Infection Control in Health and Care training course are to improve the awareness of universal procedures required to prevent and minimise the spread of infections. 

Health care workers can take steps to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. These steps are part of infection control. Proper handwashing is the most effective way to prevent the spread of infections in hospitals. Standard precautions are a set of infection control practices used to avoid transmission of diseases that can be acquired by contact with blood, body fluids, non-intact skin (including rashes), and mucous membranes.

Learning outcomes

Learning outcomes of this online Infection Control in Health and Care training course are divided into two levels. Each level reflects a level of expected knowledge, skill and understanding. The appropriate level of training is dependent upon the role, work context and local risk assessment.

Level 1 learning outcomes reflect a basic standard which should be incorporated into infection prevention and control training for all staff, including contractors and volunteers.

Level 2 learning outcomes reflect a further standard which should be incorporated into infection prevention and control training for all healthcare staff and other staff groups who provide direct patient care.

Infection prevention and control level 1 Training Course

The infection prevention and control level 1 course is for all staff, including contractors and unpaid and voluntary staff.

On completion of the Infection Control in Health and Care training course, the learner will:

  • Know-how individuals can contribute to infection prevention and control,

    • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE),
    • Management of Blood and Body Fluid Spillage,
    • Management of Occupational Exposure (including sharps),
    • Management of the Environment o Management of Care Equipment, and
  • Recognise and act when their fitness to work may pose a risk of infection to others.

Infection Control in Health and Care Level 2 Training Course

Infection Control in Health and Care level 2 training course is for all healthcare staff providing direct patient care and other relevant staff, based upon role and local risk assessment (Level 1 outcomes plus the following).

On completion of this online Infection Control in Health and Care training course, the learner will, relevant to their role:

  • Be able to describe the healthcare organisation’s and their responsibilities in terms of current infection prevention and control legislation,
  • Know how to obtain information about infection prevention and control within the organisation,
  • Understand what is meant by the term healthcare-associated infections,
  • Understand the chain of infection and how this informs infection prevention and control practice,
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the routes of transmission of micro-organisms,
  • Understand individual roles and responsibilities for the three levels of decontamination,
  • Use single-use items appropriately,
  • Be able to conduct a risk assessment in respect of ensuring infection prevention and control,
  • Explain different alert organisms and conditions that pose an infection risk, and
  • Describe how to safely manage patients with specific alert organisms.

Where applicable to the role

Apply appropriate health and safety measures, standard precautions for infection prevention and control in obtaining specimens from individuals. NB: It is to be noted that, in some healthcare settings, Level 2 learning outcomes may not be relevant for some clinical roles, e.g. Community Healthcare. It is the organisation’s discretion to agree on which learning outcomes are appropriate and, therefore, required.

What is an infection?

An infection happens when a foreign organism enters a person’s body and causes harm. The organism uses that person’s body to sustain itself, reproduce, and colonise. These infectious organisms are known as pathogens. Examples of pathogens include bacteria, viruses, fungi, and prions. Pathogens can multiply and adapt quickly.

What is infection control?

Infection control is the discipline concerned with preventing nosocomial or healthcare-associated infection, a practical (rather than academic) sub-discipline of epidemiology. It is an essential, though often under-recognised and under-supported, part of the infrastructure of health care.

Infection control in the workplace aims to prevent pathogens from being passed from one person to another. The foundation of good infection control is to assume that everyone is potentially infectious. Necessary infection control procedures include hand washing and keeping the workplace clean.

Why is online Infection Control in Health and Care training course important?

All healthcare and social care staff need to complete online Infection Control in Health and Care training course. Hand washing is an essential procedure in the prevention and minimisation of the spread of infection within health care settings. Gloves are worn as a barrier to protect the wearer’s hands from contamination or to prevent the transfer of organisms already on the hands.

The risk of infection within a health/social care setting poses a significant risk to patients, carers and staff. Without effective infection prevention and control approaches, an infection can cause distress, harm, and impair the quality of life and healthcare experiences.

Infection frequently requires additional costly resources to treat. Therefore, prevention of infection has to be a key priority for all staff groups working within a healthcare setting. Consequently, ensuring that all staff have high levels of infection prevention and control awareness, supported through an adequate education and training approach, should form a central feature of any infection prevention and control strategy.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) accreditation benefits both employees and employers. The main advantages are as follows:

  • Keeping employee skills up-to-date.
  • Maintaining professional standards.
  • Building employee confidence.
  • Enhancing career advancement.
  • Improving job satisfaction.
  • Maintaining high standards across the organisation.
  • Meeting regulatory and legislative requirements.

For employees, CPD helps to keep their knowledge and skills up-to-date. It also contributes to maintaining the professional standard of their qualifications, registrations and sense of direction.
Moreover, completing CPD helps employees to build their confidence and credibility. It empowers them to showcase their achievements and provides them with tools to cope with change positively.
In most sectors, CPD is beneficial for employees’ career progression and advancement. Many studies have found that evidence of CPD improves career prospects, such as promotions or specialism. In real terms, this means that CPD contributes to achieving job satisfaction and higher salaries.
CPD Banner - CPDUK Accredited - Learnpac System UK -

For employers, the main advantage of CPD is the security of sustaining high standards across the whole organisation. CPD can help ensure consistent standards to meet regulatory and statutory requirements.
It also improves employees’ commitment to their job roles and promotes greater work engagement from the workforce. Organisations that provide CPD, whether concurrently or over some time, allows for the sharing of best practice and support. Also, it contributes to maximising staff potential, improving staff morale and providing a useful benchmark for annual appraisals.

Colloquially and publicly, Ofqual is often referred to as the exam “watchdog”.
Ofqual regulates all the awarding bodies in the UK.

The Department for Children, Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills is an established subdivision of the Welsh Government. It is responsible for education, training and children’s services in Wales under powers devolved from the Department for Children, Schools and Families of the UK government under Schedule 5 of the Government of Wales Act 2006.
It is headed by the Minister for Education (Welsh Government).

All our statutory and mandatory training courses for health and social care are aligned to the UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF).
CPD Banner - CPDUK Accredited - Learnpac System UK -

With a highly mobile workforce, health and social care employers often need to identify recruits’ previous statutory and mandatory training. Where the training information is lacking, some staff can repeat training unnecessarily, wasting time and money.
The UK CSTF was launched in 2013 to address this issue. It allows health and social care employers to recognise statutory/mandatory training to a standard, trust that information and reduce duplication of training.
