Infection control in the veterinary clinic is vital not only for patient health, but also for veterinary staff, clients and the general public. It is not simply about preventing patients from spreading disease within the clinic, but also about controlling zoonotic diseases that may pose a great threat to human health.

This short course is structured to help you with understanding both the standard and transmission based precautions that are necessary to keep you and your patients safe. Starting with a foundation of the different types of microbes, infection transmission methods, and modes of entry, you’ll learn learn how we can break the chain of infection through our infection control practices.

Alongside all the infection control staples like waste management, PPE, cleaning, disinfection and hand hygiene, you’ll also take a look at current evidence for recommended protocols across many areas and equipment in your vet clinic. This will help you review and make positive changes to your own infection control protocols.
