Louise, explains what students can expect to learn from this course;
“This course will look at various different aspects, and considerations, for infection control. Areas such as theatre, including staff attire, and patient preparation will be covered, we will also look at hand hygiene, products available to use, cleaning and disinfection, including the selection of disinfections and also antibiotic use and misuse, and the incidence of multidrug resistant infections.”
Four sessions will be covered over the three-week course, including subjects such as, Principles of Biosecurity, Hospital Acquired infections (HAIs), Surgical Considerations and Working with Infectious Patients.
VetCPD online courses are comprised of webinars, thorough course notes, case studies, and an active forum. The courses are unique as each is run by an attentive tutor who will answer questions or comments on the forum. Each course is worth 8 hours CPD and is great value at £119 + VAT.
VetCPD is also offering another online CPD course this August, ‘Common Cancers in Cats – not a dog’s tale’, which will prepare students for feline owners’ increasing demand of cancer treatment by offering a bench-to- bedside guide to the most common types of cancers in cats and the challenge to solve real life clinical cases.
All courses run for three weeks with the tutor, beginning on 6th August and ending on the 26th August. After this time, the tutor will no longer be active, but the content and MCQ exam will still be accessible, so can be completed by the participant over the next month.
