A new evidence based online hand hygiene training course is now available free of charge and offers one hour of CPD. This course is divided into four modules which include a summary of guidelines, an introduction to the skin, a hand hygiene video and a section about improving compliance. At the end of each section, there is a series of multiple choice questions so that participants can test what has been learnt. The course is fully referenced and based on the most up to date guidelines, research and evidence.
The training has been designed to specifically address the hand hygiene issues relevant to healthcare staff working in care homes. Additional trainees can be added to any registration. This helps save time and enables the training coordinator to track the progression of other trainees.
Although it is recognised that good hand hygiene is essential to protect both staff and residents from cross infection, evidence suggests that many healthcare staff do not decontaminate their hands when required or use the correct technique. This one hour of training will help improve standards of hand hygiene through an increased understanding of the vital role it plays in delivering care.
