MySkill would like to play its part within the sector by ensuring that everyone who supports people within the community or healthcare settings have easy access to infection control learning and the growing number of links of information.
Here you will find easily accessible information and eLearning about:
- Best practice infection prevention and control
- How to minimise the risk of infection and prevent any spread
- Up-to-date information to protect yourselves as healthcare workers and the people you are supporting
- Links to other official information about COVID-19
What is COVID-19?
Coronaviruses are a large and diverse family of viruses which cause illnesses such as the common cold, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS).
New Zealand is prepared and ready to deal with a COVID-19 outbreak should it occur here. The risk of an ongoing outbreak is low-moderate, and the Ministry of Health are monitoring the situation closely.
What do we need to know as healthcare workers?
Infection prevention and control practices are always important when providing support to people who may be vulnerable or have weakened immune systems.
Below you will find a link to eLearning that is based on the NZ Certificate in Health and Wellbeing Level 2 unit standard. Because this is available free on our website, we are unable to provide NZQA assessment, however, if you would like to have your team get the unit standard just give us a call.
