What you'll learn

The infection control program is structured in a hierarchy of administrative, engineering and respiratory protection controls. Basic understanding of the infection control hierarchy and strategies and stringent communication with the infection control committee in the design phase is necessary, not only to provide a healthy and safe environment but to achieve rational solutions that minimize the complexity, operational and maintenance more »»

Building hospital design plays a major role because it must not only incorporate the systems that are responsible for infection’s engineering controls, but also the features demanded by the administrative controls. Hospital buildings are designed with intrinsic features for infection control and are related to intensive energy use.
The course provides a unique opportunity for the healthcare professionals especially the Infection control practitioners to build engineering and architectural capacity to help control airborne infections in healthcare facilities.
