About CPD

ACSQHC CPD allocation for infection control subjects

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (ACSQHC) designed 10 online interactive modules covering key topic areas relating to Infection Prevention and Control.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours have been allocated to each of these modules.

For additional resources that can be used for orientation of the workforce in a health service organisation, there is an Infection Prevention and Control Orientation Package for Health Care Workers available on the ACSQHC website.
