Standard Infection Control Precautions (SICP) Matter


We have introduced three new educational resources as part of our education provision on infection prevention and control.  

The resources make use of technology and storytelling to provide bite-sized education that is practical, engaging and scenario based and can easily be incorporated into in-house training.  

The resources include:
