Description

Are you interested in furthering your professional knowledge? If your answer is “yes” then you should check this Postgraduate Certificate in Infection Control course, imparted by University of Essex Online, that Emagister.co.uk has recently added to its catalogue.

This course provides an introduction to an understanding of the world of microbiology. Infection prevention and control continues to be a key priority for health professionals working in both hospitals and the wider community. The course aims to equip nurses and other healthcare practitioners with the skills necessary to lead best practice in this area.

The demand for Infection Control courses has increased in recent years due to multi resistant organisms and contagious illness outbreaks such as Ebola, swine flu and MRSA highlighting the need for more effective infection control. The fundamental underpinning of this course is that prevention is better than the cure and it is this mentality that will hopefully make outbreaks a thing of the past.

The economic and social costs of escalating infection such as winter flu, meningitis and HIV are well documented. Less well known are the human and economic burdens of hospital acquired infection which can result in an extra 14 days in hospital and £1 billion a year extra expenditure for the NHS. Developing and implementing effective infection control measures are dependent upon the knowledge and skills of health professionals in both hospital and community settings.

What I would highlight: the Students Union give out heirlooms to current Essex students, which keeps our community close and family-like. If you fear making new friends, there are tonnes of new sports clubs and societies that are ratified and accepted by students each year.

What I would highlight: Wi-Fi was quite useless and pathetic. Although they should be able to supply an ethernet cable free of charge. One of the best SUs in the country with societies, events, catering etc however they do need more communication with the university itself, the two are very separate organistions.
