This article attempts to prove that education regarding infection prevention and control can integrate practice, policy and procedure if it is based on critical situational analyses (performance reviews), good planning, enthusiastic and knowledgeable facilitators and mentors, as well as sound training methods backed by user-friendly technology and academic rigor. Lastly, managerial support is of utmost importance.
This task may sound daunting, but it has already been done successfully in Mpumalanga : Co-operation between the Provincial health care system and three universities in the RSA and Australia during 1998-2001 has proved that education definitely benefits all involved.
