The human toll of the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted a significant gap in the preparedness of agedcare facilities to protect residents and staff from contracting highly-infectious diseases like COVID-19. This course includes the unit HLTINF001 – Comply with infection prevention and control policies and procedures which ensures workers are trained in infection prevention and control (IPC) practices, before starting work to support aged people in care. Together the Aged Care sector and Government have collaborated to provide an urgent response and directive to include this training in the Individual Support program, to ensure aged care workers, working in aged care failities or in home and community care are well equipped to protect their community and families.
