Why study infection prevention and control?
The Covid-19 pandemic left us all acutely aware of how easily infection can silently spread, putting the most vulnerable amongst us at risk. Some people are more at risk of contracting infection than others, due to the nature of their jobs; for instance, if you work in a hospital, school or care setting. If this applies to you, then gaining a solid understanding of how infection is controlled is essential. And, because this course is a nationally recognised RQF, it will make a great addition to your CV!
