To prevent HAIs in medical and nursing routine, staff have to be up to speed with the latest insights and developments. A well-conceived system of basic and ongoing training for all healthcare professions can close any gaps in people’s knowledge of HAIs and measures for preventing infection in healthcare establishments. In collaboration with hospital hygiene experts the FOPH is defining what is required in terms of training to effectively prevent HAIs. Additional points of reference for defining training goals are provided by interviews with experts in infection prevention and people from outside the discipline, together with research of the literature.
