Safety and Hygiene in Infectious Diseases Online Training
The current pandemic poses a particular challenge for both new and well-experienced professionals working with older adults in hospitals, nursing homes or even at home. The challenges of COVID-19 are ever-reminding that a top priority for patient safety is the strict adherence to hygiene standards.
The Faculty of Medicine and Health at EDU led by designated Dean Dr Prof. Andreas Hoeft developed the Safety and Hygiene in Infectious Diseases (SHIDA) online training to prepare healthcare and nursing staff, as well as those providing care at home, to better protect their patients and themselves against infections, including COVID-19.
SHIDA is therefore offered on two levels to serve multiple needs:
COURSE START DATE:
Every Monday, as of April 2020
25 hours in total
250 EUR per participant for institutions
This level is aimed at scientifically trained healthcare staff and nurses to refresh their knowledge on safety and hygiene practices.
This level is developed in order to equip older adult care assistants working in nursing homes, as well as informal or family caregivers at care homes or their own homes, with the necessary infection control knowledge to support those in their care.
