ACTIONS HOME HEALTH STAFF CAN TAKE TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF COVID-19

About this free on-demand webinar:

As the world continues to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the important work of domiciliary care providers doesn’t stop. Your clients and patients depend on the care they receive from you and your organisation.

If those providing care are not cautious, they could be bringing COVID-19 to the people they are trying to protect. It is now more important than ever that everyone is following infection prevention best practices to mitigate risk to you, your staff, your patients, and your family.

Together with our partner in the United States, the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) we dive into the best ways for in-home providers to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Watch this webinar to learn how to:

  • Describe infection prevention and control strategies to prevent the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in the home
  • Recognise common infection prevention and control breaches during care to patients in the home
  • Describe best practice recommendations for managing PPE when supplies are limited
  • Explain how to effectively prepare for caring for a patient suspected or confirmed of having COVID-19 in the home

This webinar contains useful information for care providers in the UK, but please note that content is aligned with guidelines and recommendations from the US. Please check with your organisation’s policies and procedures to ensure you are following your own professional standards of practice.
