Patient Safety Tool: CDC's Interactive Hand Hygiene Education

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers a free training tool designed to facilitate employee training on hand hygiene.

The interactive hand hygiene education, presented as a slide show presentation, covers four topics: the importance of standard precautions, why is hand hygiene and standard precaution important and what are concerns surrounding standard precautions. The presentation also prompts employees to answer questions about their own hand hygiene practices.

Access the interactive hand hygiene education for use in your facility.
