Infection Control in Residential Care – Online Intake

Sunday June 30



Tickets are not available as this event has passed.

This training is only available for residential care workers in Victoria.

Aim of training

This is an online, interactive training module for residential care staff. It teaches participants about the importance and essential components of infection control procedures in providing quality, child-focused residential care. It provides an overview of infection control issues related to the kitchen and food preparation; dealing with spills and hazards; laundry procedures; and ensuring privacy and confidentiality issues are addressed correctly.

Following completion of the online component, the course also has a Team Talks package to guide the learner and their manager in discussing the issues the course raised in their next supervision session.

Learning outcomes
• Recognising and understanding the importance of responsive and safe infection control procedures, in line with both their Organisation’s and DHHS’ policies & procedures.

• Identifying the key infection risks within the residential home

• Developing techniques and strategies to minimise these risks for both workers and young people in out-of-home-care

• Understanding confidentiality, the principles of privacy and the law regarding your quality of care obligations


How will enrolments work for the online training?

Once you have signed them up here, your staff will be enrolled as soon as possible. You may enrol them any time up until the end of June 2019.

They will receive an email with their login details for the Moodle (our online learning management system) and will then have up to three months to complete the course at their own pace. The three month period commences from the date of enrolment – i.e. even if your staff are enrolled at the end of June, they will still have three months to complete the course.

At the halfway point – roughly one and a half months later – any staff who have not yet begun will receive a reminder. The manager who enrolled them will also receive a reminder at this time.

Because all of our courses have a supervision component, it is essential that you provide your manager/supervisor’s contact details when signing up.

Once staff have completed the online component of the courses (and received a satisfactory grade on any final assessment) they must then complete a Team Talks conversation about the course content during their next supervision session. Their manager/supervisor will notify the Centre for Excellence once the Team Talks session has been completed – the Centre will then send out a certificate of completion to the staff member.

At the conclusion of the three month period, the managers of any staff who have still not completed the training (including Team Talks) will be notified.  A full report of each staff member’s results will be generated and sent to the relevant manager for their records.


How long will the training take? Will I need any special equipment?

Although staff will have three months to finish the training in, it won’t take anywhere near that long!

On average, each course will take approximately 2 hours. One of the key benefits of online learning, however, is that staff can complete the courses in their own time.  If they have to stop, the Moodle will remember where they were up to and allow them to pick up from there when they come back.

Staff will not need any special equipment for the training, beyond a computer with a reliable internet connection. All online courses designed by the Centre for Excellence are customised for both desktop computer (Mac and PC), tablets and smartphones.
