The Infection Control game is an active learning tool developed by leading NHS infection control practitioners. The game helps staff to develop a practical understanding of the principles and practices of good infection prevention and control.

Based around a virtual ward it recreates the complexities and dynamics of an infection outbreak. The board game format is a fun, interactive and engaging team activity that is accessible to all members of staff. The infection control game challenges individuals and teams to reflect on how they manage infection prevention and control. The game requires no special equipment and sessions can be tailored to suit the time available.

Each kit is a complete self-contained training package that can be used in a variety of healthcare settings. No specialist facilitator is required making it a cost effective approach for engaging teams across the organisation.

You can order through our partners Blackwell's and Tomlinsons, or by visiting our shop.
