The HAI resource flyer (spring 2018) details the extensive range of education and training resources available.  There is also a stand alone matrix which matches the resources to the target audience groups based on job roles, which may be of assistance when planning local training sessions for staff or identifying training needs for Personal Development Plans.

KSF Dimension Mapping

Completion of the HAI online short courses will provide you with evidence against the KSF dimension 2: Personal and People Development.  You will be able to provide evidence of contributing to your own personal development and the further development of knowledge and skills related to HAI and Infection Control.

In addition, being able to demonstrate the application of the new knowledge and skills to your practice can also support the provision of evidence for other KSF dimensions relevant to your post.
