Working safely in a world living with Covid-19

This learning is designed to help you work safely in a world living wth Covid-19. It takes a risk based approach to your safety and outlines how you can protect yourself from the risks and take advantage of some of the opportunities in  a world living wth Covid-19. In the same way that doctors describe their cancer patients as “living with cancer” and do not speak of cures, so the world is living with Covid-19.

This programme is designed to help you live and work with Covid-19 and its implications including increased home working.

It can be completed in around 90 minutes, however we recommend that you take significantly more time to complete the checklists and to reflect on your own practice.

To help with this, the programme is divided into sections so that you can complete it in a number of sessions. We advise you to complete each section at one sitting to maximise your learning, but allowing time between study sessions may enhance your learning by allowing additional time for reflection on both your learning and your current practices.

At the end, there is an online test, successful completion of which will enable you to get a certificate to provide evidence of your learning. You should be able to demonstrate what you learnt going forward in changes to your behaviours.
