Enduring Webinar: Better is Possible

Replay this Educational Program to Learn How Better Hand Hygiene is Possible

August 17, 2021

Owens & Minor invites the healthcare community to join us for this continuing education webinar: Better is Possible

Hand hygiene is important, most would agree. Yet hand hygiene performance is still suboptimal in most healthcare facilities. Historically, the focus of hand hygiene improvement has been on the behavior of frontline healthcare workers, and training and education of frontline healthcare workers is usually a first-line countermeasure for improvement. While a baseline level of knowledge is necessary, it is largely insufficient to change ingrained hand hygiene habits. During this webinar, we will discuss how healthcare facilities can benefit from examining hand hygiene as a system or process problem rather than strictly a people problem.

The objectives of the webinar include:

  • Define the ‘Trap of Understanding’ and recognize how it can inhibit progress in hand hygiene improvement.
  • Explain the importance of shifting the focus from hand hygiene behavior of healthcare workers to include the systems and processes that contribute to those behaviors.
  • Describe how defining and measuring action-based leading indicators can help improve hand hygiene performance results
