Course Content: Infection and cross-contamination are a constant danger to everyone involved in Pre-Hospital Care, including us as practitioners, our patients and their family/friends. As a result, it is critical that we take the necessary precautions and follow the procedures required to prevent and control infection. This course covers the core elements required to ensure that we all stay as safe as possible and protect our patients to the best of our ability. Topics covered include:
- Methods and Means of Cross-Contamination
