Clinical Infection Control

Medics infection control training course

Clinical Infection Control procedures are designed to prevent cross transmission from recognised and unrecognised sources of infection. These sources of (potential) infection include blood and other body fluid secretions or excretions (excluding sweat, non-intact skin or mucous membranes) and any equipment or items in the care environment which are likely to become contaminated.

Infection control procedures should be applied at all times within a healthcare setting or where care is being provided and must underpin all healthcare activities. The application of procedures during care delivery is determined by:

  • The level of interaction between the healthcare worker and the patient/client.
  • The anticipated level of exposure to blood or other body fluids.

In a 2012 a MPS audit of Primary care highlighted 85% of practices had infection control issues.
