Staff training and further activities

After the staff at your service has embraced the integarted testing initiative there is a risk that it “falls of the table” after some time and test rates decline. To support sustainable continuation of the multiple disease testing regular quality checks and staff training sessions are key keep the motivation high and the implementation on track. Some resources to support this are available here:

  • Apply the easy to use quality improvement tool to develop your routine testing praxis [PDSA tool]
  • Encourage staff to sign up for a free 12-module online course on clinical, epidemiological and public health aspect of integarted testing presented by leading European experts [link to Ph module online learning]
  • Attend webinars where testing experts debate new approaches and the latest recommendations from ECDC and others [video recordings of webinars]
