Healthcare Associated Infections

HAI Mandatory Induction Training Framework

The Framework for Mandatory Induction Training in Healthcare Associated Infection (HAI) in Scotland was created in 2005.  In May 2012 this framework was revised and updated and provides support to organisations by setting out the principles that underpin the development and delivery of mandatory induction training in HAI and defining national learning outcomes against which any locally developed programme should be mapped.

The national learning outcomes have been developed to reflect the following documents:

  • The National Occupational Standards (NOS) in Infection Prevention and Control published by Skills for Health in January 2012.
  • The Infection Prevention and Control: staff working together document published by Skills for Health in August 2012, which defines the core competences for all staff groups and identifies which NOS are necessary to ensure staff are competent
  • The National Infection Prevention and Control Manual published by Health Protection Scotland (HPS) in January 2012 which updates the Standard Infection Control Precautions (SICPS) on which the original framework was based
  • The Healthcare Associated Infection Quality Standards published by NHS Quality Improvement Scotland in March 2008, these are now administered by Healthcare Improvement Scotland (HIS) and are used by the Healthcare Environment Inspectorate (HEI) as their scrutiny framework.
