RESEARCH PROPOSAL
Abstract
The following research proposal is based on noscomial infections or hospital acquired
infections (HAIs) under Canadian perspective. The HAIs is a global concern and its rate has
increased in Canada by 11.7%. The analysis of the research highlighted that the nursing
professionals lack significant knowledge in addressing HAIs leading to an increase in the
mortality and morbidity rate along with increase in the cost of care and length of hospital
stay. The aim of the research proposal is to identify the role of education in the prevention
and control of infection, with a focus on compliance with infection control precautions and its
effect on the reduction of the infection rates. In order to fulfill the aim of the research the
research will use mixed method analysis. The researcher will include 50 healthcare and
determine their knowledge, awareness and compliance to infection control practices via
quantitative analysis and qualitative analysis.

RESEARCH PROPOSAL
Working title
Study of the experience of the healthcare workers in Canada in the domain of the
infection control training for the prevention of the hospital acquired infection under in-patient
settings
Research Problem
Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) are common complications in a healthcare
organisation (Taylor et al. 2016). Increase in the overall tendency of the HAIs increases the
overall level of mortality and morbidity of the patients along with an increase in the rate of
healthcare cost and length of hospital cost (Taylor et al. 2016). There has been much debate
over the infection risks to the patients from the contaminated healthcare surfaces. Mainly the
surrounding environment facilitate the spread of the harmful pathogen like Vancomycin-
resistant enterococci (VRE), Clostridium difficile, Acinetobacter spp., methicillin-resistant
Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and norovirus which leads to the development of HAIs
(Dancer 2014). According to Dancer (2014), these infectious pathogens are frequently shed
by the patients and staffs and thus they contaminate the surfaces and thereby increasing the
risk of developing and the spread of HAIs. According to Taylor et al. (2016), HAIs, is a
global concern. Apart from contact surfaces, the incidence of HAIs also increases with the
use of contaminated or non-sterile injection needle, use of unsterilized operational
equipments and then there is catheter acquired hospital infection. However, the rate of HAIs
due to gaps in proper hand hygiene is more prominent than other causes (Taylor et al., 2016).
