afe care pathway for women and newborns: a 6-module training package

Slide2

Pregnancy-related infections and sepsis are one of the leading causes of maternal mortality worldwide

Many more women and children

experience morbidity, disability and long-term ill-health due to infections that occurred during pregnancy or the postnatal period

Most of these infections are preventable with provision of high-quality maternity care, including appropriate infection prevention and control (IPC) standards and practices

Key role of infection prevention and control (IPC) in maternal and neonatal care

Slide3

The goal of this training package is to integrate IPC standards and practices within the key steps of the care pathway for women and newborns

Across the continuum of care, from pregnancy to the postnatal period.

Best practices in infection prevention and control

Module 1:

introduction to infection prevention and control in the context of maternal and neonatal care infections

hand hygiene

risk assessment at the point of care

appropriate placement of patients (segregation/isolation/cohort to limit transmission)

appropriate use of personal protective equipment, based on risk assessment

respiratory hygiene/cough etiquette

aseptic technique

sharps and injection safety and prevention of transmission of blood-borne pathogens

safe handling and/or disposal of contaminated patient-care items and equipment (waste management)

environmental cleaning

linen (safe handling, transporting and processing)

decontamination and sterilization of reusable equipment

Global burden of health care-associated infections (HAIs), maternal and neonatal infections including sepsis
