Healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs) are infections that occur while receiving health care. Patients with medical devices (central lines, urinary catheters, ventilators) or who undergo surgical procedures are at risk of acquiring HCAIs. HCAIs remain a major clinical problem in terms of morbidity, mortality, length of hospital stay and overall direct and not-direct costs in all regions of the world. Despite guidelines to direct HCAIs prevention strategies, compliance with infection prevention and control is often poor.
We hope that this course will draw attention to the need to change practices. HIPP course is a free online course designed to help in understanding what healthcare-associated infections are and how they can be prevented. After viewing the educational material all attenders will be able to answer test. We will send the certificate to all attenders who will answer more than 80% of the questions. Passing the test you will become a “champion in preventing healthcare-associated infections”.
