DCHC invite you to sign up for our Infection Control Champion Programme in collaboration with Devon CCG, starting April 9th by Zoom.
Please note that there is a change of start date from the 18th March to the 9th April
These sessions will provisionally run for 12 weeks, starting on Friday 9th April at 11am each week.
Since the start of the pandemic there has been advice pouring into the sector from all agencies at national, regional and local level. At times this advice has been contradictory and in the main the advice has needed to be interpreted for operational purposes. This has resulted in some people finding it difficult to know what to do.
As we progress through the life cycle of the virus and we learn more about it, we can be firmer in our convictions around the strategies that work to limit the risk of Covid.
The wider infection control picture still remains. Influenza, Norovirus, C-diff, scabies to name a few.
The aim of this programme is to assist our members navigate the various regulatory requirements and guidance and implement operational systems in a timely way that are recognised county wide by system partners. Our aim eventually is to have one approach to infection control that is agreed by the Health, Social Care and Providers to avoid contradictory advice or approach.
Closing date for signing up is March 16th for the first group
