Controlling and preventing the spread of infection has always been a goal in any healthcare setting. But in recent decades challenges presented by dangerous bloodborne pathogens like HIV and hepatitis B and C, and a rise in the number of multidrug-resistant organisms, has made reducing the number of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) more important than ever for healthcare professionals working in all healthcare settings.

This five-part series is designed to assist nurses and others working in long term care in preventing the spread of infections by providing important background information and practical strategies for keeping residents - and coworkers safe from infectious pathogens.

Faced with dangerous bloodborne pathogens like HIV and hepatitis B and C, and a rise in the number of multidrug-resistant organisms, preventing the spread of infections has never been more important for healthcare professionals working in long term care.

This program - the first in a five-part series on infection control - provides healthcare professionals working in long term care with background information on the development of infection control techniques, and reviews the fundamentals of pathogen transmission, which serves as the basis for strategies to interrupt that transmission.

After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
  • Describe events the led to the development of improved infection control practices
