Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

The use of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) is a vital part of good infection prevention and control practices and is used to reduce the risk on transmitting (moving) any organism from person to person or person to an environment. PPE forms a really important aspect of protecting healthcare professionals during their day to day work with patients.  
In relation to COVID-19, surgical face masks, eye protection (goggles or visors), gloves and plastic apron are advised for general patient contact. If during their work with a patient the staff induce aerosols from a suspected positive patient, then current Department of Health and Public Health England (PHE) guidance clearly states that the worker should be wearing a filtered masks or respirator (FFP3) with long sleeved gown and eye protection and gloves. Basic PPE training is available as detailed above, this includes requirement of PPE for such conditions as COVID-19, but also many other potentially infectious organisms. This training currently does not include practical demonstrations of donning and doffing (putting on and taking off) of PPE (to save PPE stocks), but does include guides for donning and doffing off PPE.In addition, good hand hygiene is significantly evidence based to reduce healthcare acquired infections and if a very important part of reducing the spread of COVID-19. Ensuring hand wash or hand rub technique is optimised, will reduce the risk of picking up any infectious organism.

Infection, Prevention & Control Training

The spread of potentially pathogenic micro-organisms within healthcare premises is a constant concern, making effective infection prevention and control training a priority for all clinical and non-clinical healthcare employees. The primary goal of infection control training within the any healthcare provider establishment is to highlight the importance of infection prevention and control procedures and practices, and the impact of healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs).

Learners will develop an understanding of how HCAIs can spread, and their duty of care as a healthcare professional to prevent this. This includes all basic principles of good infection prevention and control as well as offering training on the importance of keeping the clinical environment clean, and the management of body fluids and blood.

Infection prevention and control training for health professionals and carers also explains the importance of hand hygiene, and details the various personal protective equipment required in various situations. These infection prevention and control courses are face-to-face and can include ultra-violet light box assessment of adequate hand hygiene if required.
