Engineering aspects of Infection Control 2013
This 4½ day course explores those aspects of infection prevention and control where engineering criteria are a vital component. It includes consideration of specialist ventilation such as that of operating theatres, thermal (surgical instrument) and chemical (endoscope) washer disinfectors, steam sterilisers, healthcare laundry and other aspects of hospital hygiene and decontamination. These are supplemented by discussion sessions to put the engineering concepts into the context of practical infection control. The aim of the course is both an understanding of the processes as they relate to infection prevention and the ability to communicate and negotiate effectively with engineers and Estates staff.
There will be one course in 2013 taking place from the 9th to 13th September 2013.
The course will be held at Eastwood Park Training Centre in Falfield (near Bristol), a uniquely equipped, specialist centre for healthcare engineering training. The course is a compulsory module for the UCL MSc and Diploma in Healthcare Infection Control, but can also be taken by those not registered for these courses. This course is accredited with 36 RCPath CPD points. The fee is £1690 (residential) or £1375 (non-residential). For details regarding registration or further information about the courses, please email Sheila.Culkin@hpa.org.uk (After the 1st April 2013, please use the address Sheila.email@example.com).
