More than 200,000 patients get infections every year while receiving healthcare in Canada; more than 8,000 of these patients die as a result. This newly revised and updated Quick Self Study reviews the basics of the chain of infection: source, modes of transmission and susceptible host - with emphasis on your role, as a healthcare professional, in breaking the chain. Terminology and methods currently used in Infection Prevention and Control of a variety of microorganisms is included, as well as resources that will allow you to keep up to date with emerging pathogens and the threat of antimicrobial resistance.
There is a four-month deadline from the date of purchase to submit your post quiz answer sheet for category “A” credit / hours.
Marks will be available within 3 weeks of submission.
The CAMRT allows candidates who have failed to obtain a 75% pass mark one additional attempt at the post quiz. A $25 administration fee applies. Candidates have one full year from the original date of registration to apply for a QSS rewrite.
Candidates who have surpassed their fourth month deadline must re-purchase the Quick Self Study.
