Infection is one of the most dreaded adverse events associated with healthcare delivery, accounting for considerable morbidity, mortality, and cost. Although sometimes unavoidable, a significant proportion of healthcare-associated infections could be prevented by better quality clinical practice. Though all healthcare practitioners are responsible for ensuring consistent delivery of high quality clinically effective care and protect patients from the risk of infection, the support of an “Infection Control Practitioner” can play a vital role in ensuring that all Health Care Workers (HCW) adhere to the correct infection control practices. Thus one can prevent a large number of infections with improved healthcare delivery and patient outcome. In view of the improved quality-conscious society and the necessity of NABH accreditation, an Infection Control Nurse (ICN) is a mandatory requirement. HCWs trained as “Infection Control Practitioner” will be able to function effectively in hospitals or any healthcare institutions as far as prevention and control of healthcare-associated infections are concerned. During this course, all the aspects of HIC will be covered.
The aim of the course is to train the healthcare workers so as to provide well-supervised expertise in the field of hospital infection control. This program is an endeavor to prepare healthcare professionals for the implementation of hospital infection control activities in their day-to-day practices to prevent hospital-acquired infections.
