Course Overview

Construction, renovation, and maintenance of health care facilities bring specific risks associated with potentially fatal infection and illness. The establishment of a thorough infection control system, along with the necessary procedures to ensure that current, relevant information is maintained, is critical to protecting patients, staff and visitors. Updated to include all the latest elements of the 2013 version of CSA Z317.13 - Infection Control During Construction, Renovation, and Maintenance of Health Care Facilities - this interactive and informative course features newly designed exercises and case studies.

Building on the foundation established by Fundamentals of Infection Control During Construction, Renovation and Maintenance of Health Care Facilities, participants will gain insight into the latest developments and requirements of this critical field and acquire practical knowledge on how to apply the necessary measures to help control risk.
