Hand hygiene is the top way to prevent the spread of healthcare-associated infections. It has also become a major focus of Joint Commission and CMS surveyors, so hospitals need to ensure their healthcare workers are complying with hand washing guidelines.

During this 90-minute webinar, Thomas R. Talbot, MD, MPH, will explain how he led a successful effort to establish a hand hygiene compliance program at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Dr. Talbot will help attendees overcome barriers to hand hygiene compliance, set up a compliance program in their facility, and create a culture of safety that encourages increased accountability.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the importance of improving hand hygiene compliance in acute care settings
  • Discuss the challenges in improving hand hygiene compliance and some potential interventions to address these barriers
  • Understand the importance of an accountability process in improving hand hygiene compliance and driving a culture of safety
