Alberta Health Services is serious about hand hygiene. The Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Hand Hygiene Program was created to support hand hygiene improvement initiatives across the province.

The IPC Hand Hygiene Program consists of hand hygiene teams with IPC Hand Hygiene Project Managers and IPC Zone Coordinators. These teams work within their zones to help with hand hygiene improvement initiatives and to complement reviews performed by Zone Reviewers (more commonly referred to as Site-based Reviewers).

If you have questions please feel free to contact the Infection Prevention and Control Hand Hygiene Program at Alternately, you can contact the Hand Hygiene Project Manager for your zone using the Contact List.
