“I would highly recommend the Infection: Prevention and Control course to any nurse (or AHP) wishing to enhance their knowledge and clinical expertise in this area. The content was fascinating, challenging my critical thinking and enabling me to use contemporary evidence to look objectively at clinical practice.”
