Just clean your hands!

The Just clean your hands campaign is well underway, with the development of a microsite being posited in order to better leverage web n+1 technologies to reach healthcare workers with this important message. The Just clean your hands program is a research project aimed at increasing hand hygiene compliance among health workers. The Hand Hygiene Education Module is part of the MOHLTC's Infection Control Core Competency Education Program.

My colleague Lynda Atack (Centennial College) and I have recently conducted research into effective learning programs for infection control. The learning modules that we studied are the first three of a planned large suite of learning products being produced by the product. These modules have recently been released to healthcare workers in Ontario. Read the Ontario Hospital Association's report here, and the MOHLTC report here.
