Healthcare associated infections cause major public health concerns, contributing to increased healthcare costs. The prevalence of healthcare associated infections in Singapore (11.9%) is higher compared to Europe (6%) and other Southeast Asian countries ( 9%) (Cai et al., 2017).
The novel coronavirus (2019-nCov) which was first identified in Wuhan, the People's Republic of China, has created alarm and caused global concern because of its similarity to SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome). There is an ongoing effort to contain it due to the mortality caused by the infection. A proven method to contain any infection is to have good infection control practices.
This course is designed to equip and update the public with the knowledge and skills in infection control and prevention and covers two major topics:
1) Infection Transmission
2) Infection Prevention
