HAND HYGIENE ESSENTIALS: Revising Our Basic Weapon in Health Care Against Infection

  • Categories CPD
  • Duration 01h 06m 45s
  • Last Update May 17, 2021


The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented attention to the powerful benefits of handwashing with soap. Hand hygiene is a cost-effective public health intervention, with important implications for COVID-19 prevention and well as for the prevention of a host of conditions that plague populations in low- and middle-income countries, such as diarrheal diseases, respiratory infections, and other infectious diseases.

Hand hygiene is the primary measure to reduce infections. A simple action, perhaps, but the lack of compliance among health-care providers is problematic worldwide. On the basis of
research into the aspects influencing hand hygiene compliance and best promotional strategies, new approaches have proven effective.

Hand hygiene is therefore the most important measure to avoid the transmission of harmful germs and prevent health care-associated infections.

Join Katrina Del Rosario in a one-hour online session focusing on the international recommendations on hand hygiene to re-enforce existing basic infection control knowledge especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
