Research and analysis of knowledge and skills of health care professionals on the prevention and infection control in health care

Magdalena Ninova

Abstract

In examining the need for training of health care professionals working in the Hospital, as well as students with education and qualification Bachelor`s degree from the programs - Nurse and Midwife, in prevention and control of nosocomial infections conducted in five regions of Bulgaria and all Faculties of Health Care at medical universities it was established that there is a recognized need of developing criteria of safe care. The present study aims not so much to clarify the need for training but to determine the predisposition to continue to learn and develop in an appropriate direction, which will contribute to an even greater degree of professionalism of the activities to control and prevent nosocomial infections. The answers to all closed-ended questions in the survey aimed at clarifying the training practices passed for continuing education and the potential to participate in other trainings showed a definite need of training. At this stage it is difficult to determine whether this is a conscious stand or unconscious predisposition to training as a result of the established idea that it is something that should be done or just a fear of making a mistake.
