Infection Prevention and Control - Online Training Course - the Mandatory Training Group UK -

Welcome to The Mandatory Training Group's online Infection Prevention and Control 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 healthcare 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.
