You will need to:

• Prepare an outline of what will be covered in the meeting

• Write a summary of the key points of the policy

• Write a summary of the key points from the Code of Practice

• Outline how the team will used hazard identification

• Detail how the team will continue to be informed on infection control.

• Provide at least two examples of communication methods (for example a poster). These can be created or from existing industry tools

• Outline your plan for coaching and support as required to ensure that individuals/teams are able to implement infection control practices

• Deal with issues raised through consultation and ensure they are resolved promptly or referred to the appropriate personnel for resolution

• Outline workplace procedures for dealing with infection control risks and hazardous events

• Detail how you will encourage employees to report infection risks and to improve infection control procedures

iii) It is written in simple English.

iv) It comprises of an average of 15 words for each sentence.

v) There are separate paragraphs for each new content/topic or discussions. Include references to relevant legislation, which must be defined.

Attach any models, tools, or resources that could be used in an organisation to improve the case study situations presented.

Tip: Read all text aloud in order to identify any gaps and correct them. Ask another person to proof read your work in order to check for accuracy before you submit.

A minimum of 1,000 words is required (attachments are not to be included in word count).

Writing strategies and actions for future improvements

A case study is designed for you to demonstrate your skills in reading, accurately interpreting and providing workable responses and strategies.

Check that your responses provide:

1. Identification and clarification of the key issues. Discuss and provide some suggestions as to what has caused these.

2. Key facts and information that is relevant and demonstrates your ability to provide solutions.

3. Templates and resources that could assist managers in the future when managing their teams.

4. Recommendations, both short term and long term, to improve the current situation.

Also ensure the appropriate use of headings and formats so as to reflect a professional presentation.
