Description

Hand hygiene is important, most would agree. Yet, hand hygiene performance is still suboptimal in most healthcare facilities. Training and education are usually first-line countermeasures for improvement. While a baseline level of knowledge is necessary, it is largely insufficient to change ingrained hand hygiene habits. Additionally, when it comes to hand hygiene improvement, we have historically focused on the behavior of frontline healthcare workers. Healthcare facilities may, however, benefit from looking at hand hygiene performance as a system or process problem rather than strictly a people problem.

It has been an exhausting year, and those working in long-term care have been especially hard hit by COVID-19.  This webinar was developed to share strategies for hand hygiene improvement and also to provide encouragement and support that better is possible, even in the face of significant obstacles and challenges.

Upon completion of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • 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 leading indicators can help predict hand hygiene performance results.
  • Summarize how “better is possible” despite obstacles and challenges.

PRESENTER

Lori Moore

LORI MOORE  joined GOJO Industries in 2013 as a Clinical Application Specialist. In this position, she provided leadership and support to healthcare organizations as they implemented electronic compliance monitoring (ECM) to more accurately measure hand hygiene performance. She has been a trusted partner to hospital key stakeholders in the development, design and implementation of hand hygiene improvement efforts. In January 2017, she transitioned to the position of Clinical Educator for Healthcare. She began her professional career in healthcare in 2010 as a registered nurse in the medical intensive care unit at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation (where she continues to work on the weekends). Her passion for patient safety and quality of care sparked her interest in infection prevention, and she worked as an infection preventionist prior to joining GOJO.
