Enduring Webinar: Skin Health & Hand Hygiene Compliance: Let Science Be Your Guide

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: Skin Health & Hand Hygiene Compliance: Let Science Be Your Guide

There are few environments like healthcare, where workers are expected to perform hand hygiene dozens, if not a hundred times a day. Among the inherent challenges contributing to suboptimal hand hygiene compliance are the sheer number of hand hygiene opportunities, irritated or damaged skin, and pervasive misconceptions around the impact of hand hygiene products on healthcare worker skin. In this webinar, we will discuss the importance of understanding the inter-relationship between repetitive hand hygiene, hand hygiene products, and skin damage. We will also examine key factors for balancing skin health and hand hygiene compliance.

The objectives of the webinar include:

  • Review the science of soap and sanitizer and debunk myths surrounding hand hygiene products
  • Recognize the impact of irritant contact dermatitis on hand hygiene compliance
  • Explain the cycle of skin damage and best practices for prevention
