This eLearning program is available in both tracked and free versions. Available at a cost, the tracked version provides each participant with a certificate of completion and a record of the training will be retained. The free version is available on demand, but does not provide a certificate of completion and no records of completion will be maintained.
The online training program was developed by Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and Research Institute in partnership with PSHSA. It was developed as a result of a research grant and is intended as an introduction to this topic. The course provides information on the nature and generation of bioaerosols in the healthcare setting. This eLearning course is designed so that participants can learn at their own pace in their own environment.
By the end of this eLearning module, learners will be able to:
- Describe bioaerosols in the context of infectious diseases and transmission
- Identify scenarios where bioaerosols may pose a risk
- Describe control strategies using the hierarchy of controls
The course is available in two formats including a free web-based version and a SCORM-compliant version that offers tracking functionality.
