Effective infection control and prevention is vital in order to provide high-quality healthcare for your patients and a safe working environment for your staff.

There are approximately 200,000 healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in Australian acute healthcare facilities each year. It is possible to significantly reduce the rate of HAIs through effective infection prevention and control.
Understanding the modes of transmission of infectious organisms and knowing how and when to apply the basic principles of infection prevention and control is critical to the success of an infection control program. This responsibility applies to everybody working and visiting a healthcare facility, including administrators, staff, patients and carers.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

Personal protective equipment (PPE) refers to a variety of barriers, used alone or in combination, to protect mucous membranes, airways, skin and clothing from contact with infectious agents. PPE used as part of standard precautions includes aprons, gowns, gloves, surgical masks, protective eyewear and face shields. Selection of PPE is based on the type of patient interaction, known or possible infectious agents, and/or the likely mode(s) of transmission.
