Course Description

Understanding MRSA - Level 2 ABC Award

Our Understanding MRSA programme investigates the rise in associated media attention, and how it has resulted in the Government settings targets. Such objectives have been put in place to decrease the number of deaths that occur from these infections.  

In order to successfully meet these targets, it is required that all staff that work in NHS Hospital Trusts, Primary Care Trusts and also in a nursing and social care setting, will need to be trained to have sufficient knowledge and understanding of such infections.

Learners will be guided through what MRSA is, how it affects patients and also how to monitor and control cross infection. 

This Understanding MRSA course aims to provide training for staff who work in a caring capacity. There are three modules to be studied in this course. The first two modules will allow the learner to develop their knowledge on the different areas that can cause infection, how they develop and grow, and also the necessary steps to take to prevent the infection from spreading. 

The third module will provide students with an insight into MRSA and how it has become a ‘super bug’ that is resistant to antibiotics. This module will also investigate a workers role and legal responsibility when it comes to reducing the spread of infection.  

You are not required to have any prior qualifications to enrol on to this programme. It has been created to encourage your personal development in a subject area that is relevant and important in your job role. Upon successfully completion of the necessary workbook activities and assignments, you will be awarded with a certificate from ABC. This course will provide students with the necessary learning materials needed to support workshop style delivery. 

Each module will require you to complete a number of structured questions that will enable the learner to show the relevant knowledge has been obtained. Students will be required to complete a number of work based assignments, which will enable you to demonstrate and display your ability to apply your learning knowledge to work practices. Not only this, you will investigate how it all complies with current procedures, and the policies in place. 

Your personal tutor will review and assess your work and responses to the structured questions involved in each module. The assessment workbook is included in the learning pack provided. It will consist of all the necessary structured assignment questions, and also revision activities needed to strengthen your knowledge and understanding. 

Your personal tutor will then review and mark your work. Your tutor will also provide more information regarding use of the workbook and also about the assessment process, as well as how to submit work. 

Please note: you are required to be employed in a work environment to complete this programme. It is important that you check you are able to meet the course requirements.
