This resource provides a comprehensive toolkit for the application of the Standard Infection Control Precautions (SICP) for all community Health and Social Care staff.
It lists common infection risks you may encounter when visiting someone in their own home to provide care. Choose one and it reveals the “must do” SICP guidance to follow that can minimise the risk of spreading infection to you and the person you care for. It also offers key advice on areas to consider and other factors to keep you, and those you care for, safe from the spread of infection.
If you just want an update on the Standard Infection Control Precautions, and how they relate to the care you provide in someone’s home, then go directly to the list of SICP for more information.
This is an invaluable resource for all and any community staff who visits homes to care for someone.
Developed by NHS Education for Scotland, in collaboration with Health Protection Scotland, Care Inspectorate and Scottish Care.

The majority of high-energy Craniomaxillofacial traumatic or oncologic defects are composite, involving the skin, skeleton, and mucosa. Successful reconstruction restores facial projection and lays the foundation for functional rehabilitation. Human facial transplantation has become a reality and holds tremendous promise for severely disfiguring Craniomaxillofacial deformities.
The focus of this course will be on aesthetic and functional reconstruction of the craniofacial hard and soft tissue. The distinguished faculty will discuss reconstruction for bony, as well as, soft tissue reconstruction of the face and skull. The course will be advanced and problem oriented with an emphasis on the newest techniques, planning and imaging. The format will include lectures and panel discussions to facilitate audience participation.
