The Infection Prevention and Control Care Quality Guide aims to help health and social care staff and carers refresh, develop or extend their learning in key areas of practice.
If you are new to working with a particular client group or in a new role, you can use the material to quickly develop knowledge you will need, and where appropriate, work towards a relevant qualification.
If you are a more experienced worker, you can use the guides to refresh your learning and for continuing professional development. If you are a manager, you can use these guides with staff in the context of supervision and continuing professional development, and to contribute towards meeting Care Quality Commission (CQC) standards.
This guide also provides underpinning knowledge for parts of units IC01 The principles of infection prevention and control, and IC02 Causes and spread of infection, and the thinking and key learning activities can contribute to evidence of learning.
Infection Prevention and Control is for health and social care staff and carers.
