Available: On Demand

Infection prevention and hand hygiene are not always top-of-mind in outpatient settings, which are generally considered to be “low risk.” However, this could not be further from the truth. This webinar will review the minimum standards for safe care in outpatient settings, describe why hand hygiene is so critical and review the elements of a multi-modal approach for a hand hygiene program in an outpatient setting with practical examples and tips.
