This course thoroughly explores those aspects of infection prevention and control where engineering criteria are a vital component. It includes sessions on specialist ventilation such as that of operating theatres, thermal (surgical instrument) and chemical (endoscope) washer disinfectors, steam sterilisers, healthcare laundry and other aspects of hospital hygiene and decontamination. These are supplemented by discussion sessions, which put the engineering concepts into the context of practical infection control.

Learning objectives:
Delegates will learn to assess areas where engineering controls have a significant impact on preventing infection transmission in healthcare. You will gain an understanding of relevant processes as they relate to infection prevention, as well as an ability to communicate and negotiate effectively with engineers and Estates staff.
