Resources for Hand Hygiene
As part of Agency for Integrated Care (AIC)'s ongoing efforts to support our community care partners, we are pleased to present to you a complimentary copy of the Hand Hygiene Toolkit. The Hand Hygiene Toolkit is a compilation of resources from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Agency for Integrated Care (AIC). The toolkit consists of reading materials, awareness posters, training slides and forms to promote the awareness of good hand hygiene practices amongst care staff, visitors and residents.
We hope you and your staff will find the Hand Hygiene Toolkit useful in your bid to encourage good hand hygiene practices in your organisation.
