The Hospital Infection Control training program is expected to consist of 5 modules, 1-2 weeks in length, over 2 years. Contact with students will be maintained between training visits through phone, Skype and email. The training program will encompass a baseline assessment, development, formal adoption and implementation of improved procedures, training of hospital staff in both procedural tasks and monitoring of outcomes, and training of hospital staff to act as trainers for new personnel to ensure that the improvements are sustained.
