About Infection Control at University of Essex Online

Our Postgraduate Diploma in Infection Control is an advanced qualification designed to equip nurses and other healthcare professionals with a comprehensive understanding of infectious disease control and prevention in hospital, social care and community settings. The course examines key areas including microbiology, immunology, public health and communicable disease control.

The demand for Infection Control courses has increased in recent years due to contagious illness outbreaks and multi resistant organisms such as swine flu, MRSA and Ebola highlighting the need for more effective infection control. The fundamental underpinning of this programme is that prevention is better than the cure and it is this mentality that will hopefully make outbreaks a thing of the past.

With infectious diseases frequently dominating news headlines, understanding how infections occur and how different micro-organisms act and spread has become a key issue for many professionals working in health and social care. Although this course is ideally suited for Clinical Nurse Specialists in Infection Control, it is also of value to other healthcare practitioners, including staff of health ministries, health departments, aid organisations and disease control agencies.
