Infection prevention training: Open to all providers

Infection Prevention Control Training for anyone delivering care in Sutton.

Published on 13/10/2020 in Covid-19 | News

Training is underway for anyone delivering care in the London Borough of Sutton. People who have already attended have given very positive feedback and agree that it was a valuable learning experience.

Face to face

2 hour sessions are being held at Sutton Civic offices every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons throughout October, November, December and January and will continue through February if the demand is there. 2 hour slots can be booked between 12pm and 5pm to provide greatest flexibility.

The 2 hr session covers:

  • How does COVID-19 spread?
  • Hand hygiene
  • Wearing the right PPE for the job
  • How to ‘Don’ PPE appropriately
  • How to ‘Doff’ safely
  • Waste management

Candidates will demonstrate the donning and doffing procedures and will have the opportunity to ask questions specific to their practice.

There is some pre-reading required that takes no longer than one hour to complete.

Book a place

All places must be booked through Sarah.Brown@swlondon.nhs.uk via email as we are limited to 8 people per session in order to maintain the 2m social distancing recommendations.

Virtual

We are also offering virtual training via microsoft teams, covering the same topics, lead by a dedicated Infection Prevention Control Nurse. The sessions tend to run in the afternoon between 2-4pm but can flex to meet your needs.
