UK Registered Charity 1122246 This website would not be possible without the kind help of Tony Martin of the “AV Martin Charitable Foundation”

The Bella Moss Foundation (BMF) has joined forces with Oncore Online Learning to launch a learning module to help veterinary staff beat the superbugs and implement rigorous, tailored infection controls in practice.

The two-week virtual learning course, entitled “Practical infection control”, is the most recent addition to a range of educational tools from BMF, including best practice guidelines and an online “self audit” practice room checklist.

The charity approached Oncore about creating a formal education course in light of the revised RCVS Practice Standards Scheme being launched at London Vet Show next week, which will now include dedicated infection control criteria in three of its new modules.

Practical infection control is delivered online as a fully tutored course and students will have access to Oncore’s dedicated virtual learning environment, which will host a lecture, learning materials and discussion forums.
