CNE on Infection Prevention and Control

News Type : General News

A Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) on Infection prevention and control was organized by the RajaRajeswari College of Nursing on 3rd Feb 2023. This CNE was conducted for the Ist Year B.Sc Nursing & GNM students with a view to develop their knowledge and give hands on experience regarding Infection prevention and control. This CNE was organized with the association of Department of Microbiology, RajaRajeswari Medical College and Hospital.

Infection prevention and control (IPC) is a practical, evidence-based approach preventing patients and health workers from being harmed by avoidable infections. Effective IPC requires constant action at all levels of the health system, including policymakers, facility managers, health workers and those who access health services. IPC is unique in the field of patient safety and quality of care, as it is universally relevant to every health worker and patient, at every health care interaction. Defective IPC causes harm and can kill. Without effective IPC it is impossible to achieve quality health care delivery.

Education is a never ending process in a person’s life and it’s the responsibility of each and every individual to update themselves as the time goes on. Along with education, skills also play a major role in providing efficient care to a patient. Therefore it’s necessary to improve knowledge as well as skills in providing quality care. A total of 179 students attended the program .The group was welcomed by Mrs Tejeswari B V. The overview of the CNE was given by Dr Uma Devi A K.Vice Principal, & HoD, Department of Medical Surgical Nursing. Vote of Thanks was given by Mrs Reshma Kharvi.
