Around 10,000 nurses will be expected to complete a 40-minute video training module on tackling Clostridium difficile over the next year, the government has said.

It shows a patient's experience of contracting C. difficile and looks at how the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Trust managed to control an outbreak, sharing the lessons they learned about prevention.

Chief Nursing Officer Christine Beasley said: 'Staff must understand the causes of infections and learn the lessons from outbreaks in order to prevent other outbreaks in the future.

'Royal Devon and Exeter have made some excellent progress on C. difficile infection and the staff involved should be congratulated. This video provides other trusts with a resource to help them do the same.'
