My PhD is a mixed methods, sequential explanatory study exploring undergraduate nursing students’ education and training in aseptic technique in the United Kingdom. In phase one, a national survey was conducted to establish when, what and how aseptic technique is taught and assessed in undergraduate nursing programmes. Phase two consisted of an embedded, multiple case-study to explore students, educators’ infection prevention nurses’ and mentors’ understanding of aseptic technique and the contextual factors that influence learning in the university and clinical practice setting.

The importance of this study is grounded in National and International policy which identifies improving infection practices as a key strategy in reducing the risk of Health Care Associated Infection (HCAI) and antimicrobial resistance. Improving infection prevention practices such as aseptic technique is essential for patient safety.

This unique study will inform practice, education, policy and research about how undergraduate nursing students’ education and training in aseptic technique might be enhanced.
