I would recommend this course to others within our industry. The information provided is easily transferable to most settings. It is also a good insight into what happens outside acute care facilities. I an new to a clinical nurse consultant role and I find courses like this very valuable.
If the attendee has current knowledge of IPC it is a good refresher along with some new and key learnings around COVID-19. Everyone who completed it would get something out of each of the modules with some more than others depending on their area of interest, knowledge or expertise.
From the commercial perspective (we supply PPE to health & aged care sectors), these videos provide great insight and first-hand information from professional who work in the aged care industry. With the knowledge I’ve gained from this course, I can tailor my marketing material to my customers. I would highly recommend this course to others even if they don’t work in the aged care sector as a clinician or direct care-giver.
