We’ll talk both about Infection control, Interpreting in Locked Inpatient Units and about “Occupational Safety” – this is, other steps you can take to keep yourself and everyone around you safe as you make your way in a hospital or clinic setting.
This course starts with a narrated PowerPoint presentation on staying safe in healthcare settings. The presentation is divided into eight parts, and each part is followed by a short quiz, so that you can reinforce and track your own learning. A total of 4 interactive exercises follow the presentation, to give you a chance to apply what you’ve learned. There is a final accumulative test of what you have learned. In order to print out the Certificate of Attendance upon completion, you must complete all of the course activities and receive a final grade of 80% or higher. When you have completed the course, please complete the course evaluation form. Your input will help me make future courses even better.
