This training covers the fundamentals of infection prevention and control for COVID-19. Additional training modules, specifically designed for aged care workers are also available. The training can be accessed here.
This includes a module on outbreak management, which takes approximately 8 minutes to complete, and by the end of the module participants will be able to:
- identify what a COVID-19 outbreak is
- demonstrate the appropriate infection prevention control measures for a COVID-19 outbreak
- explain how to isolate and cohort residents during a COVID-19 outbreak
- identify appropriate cleaning and waste disposal procedures during a COVID-19 outbreak.
If you would like to access the aged care training, users will need to register their workplaces as ‘aged care’. If you have already registered for online training but not with ‘aged care’ as your workplace, email firstname.lastname@example.org for a priority response.
