Supporting People to Stay Infection Free

We are hearing a lot about COVID-19, a new virus that affects people’s respiratory system. Most people get a mild infection, others get a severe infection, causing hospitalisation. People with underlying health conditions such as diabetes, heart and respiratory conditions are more likely to develop a severe form of COVID-19.

To help share best practice in infection prevention, we're releasing this eLearning module for free. It's an early release from our upcoming support worker training suite and goes through some theory and lots of practical strategies for preventing and controlling infections. It is:

  • interactive, with scenarios to test your understanding in practice
  • based in contemporary, consumer informed best practice
  • focused on maintaining privacy, choice and control
  • aligned with the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework

Sign up as many learners as you need at no cost. All learners will be issued a certificate upon completion.

RPL Pathway

DSC are working with TAFEs across Australia on Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) pathways for our Support Worker training resources. This means that completing some modules and providing other evidence of learning and experience can reduce the amount of time needed to complete units within the Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability).
