Supporting Global Handwashing day

Global Handwashing day (15 October 2014) aims to create renewed awareness about the importance of hand washing and to inspire increased investment in hand washing efforts. Performing hand hygiene is one of the most important things you can do to help reduce the spread of infections like MRSA, C.diff (Clostridium difficile) and norovirus. 

There are a number of resources available for you to use locally and we would encourage you to take the time to review the WHO 5 Moments for Hand Hygiene.   NES have developed educational resources to support infection prevention and control with hand hygiene an important element to the education.  These resources include:

Promoting Hand Hygiene in Healthcare
HAI Induction/Refresher Training Programme
Preventing Infection in Care and Preventing Infection in Care at Home
