This course introduces participants to the major challenges that face laboratories worldwide dealing with potentially infectious agents or samples. To understand the intense of the challenge, participants must understand the biology and primary basics of microbiology such as the development, life cycle, and mechanisms of infection that common pathogens exhibit. Accordingly, students will learn how to identify risk groups and the respective laboratories that are required to contain respective samples.
By the end of this course, the participant will be able to:
Explain the basic concepts of pathogens biology and their transmission.
Identify the challenges associated with laboratory acquired infections and containment procedures
Explain the basics of bloodborne pathogens
Apply strategies to prevent and control the laboratory acquired infections
Training Delivery Methods
