Aged Care ACIPC Education

Online Short Course in IPC in Aged Care Settings

ACIPC’s Short Course in Infection Prevention and Control in Aged Care Settings is an online version of our popular face to face Aged Care workshops which has been delivered all over Australia in the last couple of years. This course is designed for individuals from a variety of roles/professions working in an Aged Care Setting.

Foundations of IPC

The ACIPC Foundations of Infection Prevention and Control (Foundations of IPC) course provides a valuable pathway for further learning and is an important resource for those wishing to pursue a career as an infection control professional.

With 11 self-paced modules, this course allows participants to apply knowledge to their own practice. Foundations is a key component to achieving the ACIPC Primary Credential (CICP-P). The program has been designed to accommodate busy work schedules, with a series of self-directed learning units supported by a structured online curriculum. Topics include: environmental hygiene, outbreak management, employee health, surveillance, epidemiology and microbiology. This course reflects recent evidence, guidelines and standards.
