The Infection Prevention Society and the International Scientific Forum on Home Hygiene have undertaken a revision of the IFH/IPS training/self learning resource: “Home Hygiene: Prevention of Infection at home - a training resource for carers and their trainers” which has been in widespread use since 2003.
The content (i.e. hygiene advice etc) remains much the same, but the resource has been revised in line with current methods of learning. The section on home healthcare has been extended to include new topics. The resource also addresses issues such as how to protect against infection whilst sustaining exposure to the microbial world.
