The Bella Moss Foundation (BMF) works with ONCORE Online Learning to provide the two week, tutored, online learning module: Practical Infection Control – protocols into practice

 

This module allows participants to learn more about infection control, discuss issues that they face in practice, and create practice protocols that are tailored to their own clinics, that will be evaluated by the tutor. The course is 100% online, and students will have access to ONCORE’s flexible virtual learning environment which will host a lecture, learning materials and discussion forums.

The charity approached ONCORE about creating a formal education course in light of the revised Practice Standards Scheme, set for release later this month, which will now include dedicated infection control criteria in three of its new modules.

Course materials and ongoing tutor support and assessment will be provided by expert VN lecturer and BMF advisor Louise O’Dwyer. Encouraging practitioners to sign up, Louise said: “This will be a highly interactive course which will be tailored to the individual delegate, and therefore the individual practices.

“It will have a different learning format to many other CPD courses, being interactive and very much driven by delegate feedback, meaning those undertaking the course can gain the specific information they need on aspects such as prevention of surgical site infections, cleaning and disinfection, surgical patient preparation and hand hygiene.”

Jill Macdonald, RVN and founder of ONCORE Online Learning, said: “Infection control is a key component of any practice routine, but in my experience having clear and up-to-date practice guidelines and protocols – that everyone actually uses – can sometimes be overlooked.

“This module, especially timely given new official focus on infection safeguards in the PSS, will empower nurses and other staff to implement the most recent and robust infection control methods, whatever their place of work, whether it be a small local practice or a large veterinary hospital.”

She added: “I have long admired the achievements of BMF and its tireless efforts to educate both owners and veterinary professionals, and was delighted to be able to work with them on this project.”

Practical Infection Control costs £129 and counts for six hours of documented CPD. A percentage of the proceeds will be donated to BMF, to help the charity continue to fund veterinary education and 24/7 support for pet owners seeking advice on antimicrobial resistant infections.
