Friday 18th September: 1-2pm

The prevention and control of infection has always been a high priority in care home settings, but with the heightened infection risk of Covid-19, the focus on good infection control practices is as important as it has ever been.

The NICE Quality Standard for Infection Prevention and Control [QS61] states that there is organisational responsibility to have a strategy for continuous improvement in infection prevention and control, including accountable leadership, multi-agency working and the use of surveillance systems. But what does that mean in practical terms?

In this webinar, Scott Finnigan, General Manager of Thistle Healthcare Group, will share his experience.

Key learning outcomes include:

    • How to take a data-driven and risk-based approach to proactively manage the risk of infections
    • How digital technology can support in the early detection of infection
    • The importance of engaging with your workforce to co-create your strategic and operational approach to infection prevention and control
