COVID-19

COVID-19 is the new coronavirus disease that was first diagnosed in China in December 2019. Since then, an outbreak has occurred that has been declared a pandemic.

Altura Learning has produced a training video which explains the virus and symptoms of the disease. This course also provides practical demonstrations of hand hygiene, application and removal of PPE and practical strategies to help prepare and mitigate the impact of COVID-19.

The course includes an interview with a Microbiologist, who educates in infection control, and will discuss the virus and its potential impact to adult social care, and steps that can be taken to protect people in our care as well as employees.

As part of our continued commitment to improving the quality of people’s lives, we are offering the course free of charge.

We’re pleased to offer access to the course to everyone.

Course Chapters

Chapter 1 : An Interview with Margaret Jennings

Find out what trained Microbiologist Margaret Jennings has to say about COVID-19 and what we can be doing to protect people in our care.

Chapter 2 : Hand Hygiene

Hand hygiene is an essential part of containing the spread of COVID-19. In this short video we demonstrate how to perform hand hygiene using an alcohol hand rub and washing hands using soap and water as per the World Health Organisation’s recommendations.

Chapter 3 : Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

The appropriate use of PPE prevents the transmission of COVID-19 and keeps health workers safe, but it’s essential it’s applied and removed correctly. This video contains a demonstration of donning and removing of the appropriate PPE when caring for a person who has COVID-19.
