What are HHA Hand Hygiene Workshops?

HHA Hand Hygiene Workshops are designed to teach participants how to audit Hand Hygiene Compliance using the 5 Moments for Hand Hygiene audit tool.

The Workshops also provide education to participants on implementing a Hand Hygiene program at a healthcare facility, and Hand Hygiene education for healthcare workers.  

Who should Attend a Workshop?

Careful thought and planning needs to be put into choosing the right person to attend a workshop.  They will usually become the person who conducts the HHC audits. The appropriate person will vary between facilities. Points to consider include:

  • Have a background as a clinical health professional
  • Availability to attend HHA Auditor training
  • Have time available to conduct audits
  • Have a good understanding of auditing/feedback/education processes
  • Acknowledge and understand safety and privacy concerns of patients and staff
  • Have the ability to provide immediate feedback to staff for good hand hygiene practices, and correct unacceptable performance
  • Auditors from a variety of health professions could promote widespread acceptance/ownership/participation in activities to improve hand hygiene within their area.
