About the Course
This course is primarily aimed at developing capacity among learners for best practices in Health Care-Associated Infection Prevention and Control. Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) can easily qualify as the most important patient safety concerns in hospitals. To address the menace of HAI, infection control is kept as one of the main objectives, while designing any healthcare delivery structure, policies and processes. Almost all activities that are done within the hospital and health care institutions have a bearing on infection control and there are a large number of studies that have resulted in various good practices for controlling infections. It is also a requirement under the National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers (NABH) to review the standards and objective elements for Infection Prevention and Control best practices during the accreditation on the process in the country.
