Infection prevention and control is a must in all modern hospitals and healthcare institutions. Fundamental knowledge of hygiene and cleansing routines is a prerequisite for all personnel. New technologies, procedures and regulatory requirements are introduced at a rapid pace within the area of infection control. Therefore, new knowledge and routines need to be implemented to meet requirements.

The course is part of a change management program aimed at providing high quality healthcare and use of medical products based on established routines and adequate knowledge.
