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.
