Vaccination and Healthcare
Vaccination is a key tool in infection prevention for healthcare workers and patients entering healthcare facilities. It is important to encourage staff members, patients, visitors, and family members to get vaccinated to protect themselves from disease and help prevent the spread of disease within healthcare facilities.
Mental Health and Healthcare
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
An infection occurs when germs enter the body, increase in number, and cause a reaction of the body. Infection prevention is a practical, evidence-based approach preventing patients and health workers from being harmed by avoidable infections.
