CH: Outbreak Management

Managing outbreaks of infection in health and social care settings is an important part of infection prevention and control practice.

Influenza, viral gastroenteritis (Norovirus) and other infectious diarrhoeal illnesses such as Clostridium difficile can be easily spread in the healthcare setting.

Accurate documentation is key to monitoring an outbreak effectively and the ‘Outbreak Management Pack’ provides tools to support and guide you in the implementation of infection prevention and control practice.

A downloadable Community Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Guidance document which can be adopted as a Policy by your organisation is available below.  Alternatively, a complete set of IPC Guidance documents are available to purchase @ £69.99 – details can be found on the flyer and resource order form.
