INTRODUCTION
Biomedical waste management has become a critical issue as it poses potential health risks and damage to the environment. It is also of greater importance due to its potential environmental hazards and public health risks with high propensity to result into epidemics.
It continues to be a major challenge, particularly, in most healthcare facilities of the developing countries where it is hampered by technological, economical, social difficulties and inadequate training of staff responsible for handling of the waste. Poor conduct and inappropriate management and disposal methods exercised during handling and disposal of biomedical waste is an increasing significant health hazards and environmental pollution/hazards due to the infectious nature and unpleasant smell of the waste. Despite the fact that current medical waste management (MWM) practices vary from hospital to hospital, the problematic areas are similar for all healthcare units and at all stages of management.

In Nigeria, a typical developing African nation, not many people are aware that medical waste contributes substantially to environmental pollution and hazards. This is reflected by lack of awareness and specific policy to address the menace of healthcare facility waste, some of which is deemed hazardous. It is important to note that healthcare wastes, if not properly managed, could pose an even greater threat and hazards than the original diseases. However, there are some problems encountered with the management of biomedical waste and they are- improper storage, frequent dumping of infectious waste with municipal waste, no uniform definition and identification of hazardous waste and low level of awareness about the management of medical waste.
This course is a follow-up to Use of English I. This course provides communication skills training for the health workers-in-training to develop their interpersonal skills and build rapport with others in the workplace. The training covers effective communication strategies to enhance understanding, verbal communication with others, report writing skills, logical argument and coherence in public presentation and other 21st century soft skills such as ability to identify fake news, phishing and modern day work ethics.
