Implementation of infection prevention and exposure control measures helps create a safe environment for health care providers (HCPs) and patients.1 In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, safety is of paramount concern and importance for HCPs and learners, as well as patients.

As you enter your clinical rotations, it is essential that you have knowledge of infection prevention and exposure control measures to ensure not only your own safety, but that of your colleagues, your patients, and the community around you — not only with respect to COVID-19, but to any other communicable disease as well. This module will prepare you to safely learn and participate in a clinical placement.
