HLTINFCOV001 Comply with infection prevention and control policies and procedures describes the skills and knowledge required to follow organisational infection prevention and control procedures, including implementing standard and transmission-based precautions and responding to infection risks. It applies to individuals working in health and direct client care contexts.
The COVID19 pandemic has underscored the central role of infection prevention in keeping people safe and well. Support workers must acquire the skills to follow strict protocols in order to prevent the spread of infectious disease when caring for their clients.
This Learner Guide is designed for health service workers in a range of sectors who are required to implement infection control. It covers:
- Standard and additional precautions for the prevention and control of disease
- How to identify infection hazards and assess risk
- How to follow procedures for managing the risks associated with specific hazards
Practice Tasks allow the learner to test their comprehension as they work through the learning content. Learning Checkpoints allow them to review their knowledge by responding to questions and interpreting case studies. The workplace examples demonstrate many different scenarios that call for infection prevention and control, which helps to build the learner’s understanding of the significance of robust policies and procedures.
