The following ten (10) self-directed modules cover information on key principles and scenarios about hand hygiene reviews and the Clean Hands System that will help you become a successful hand hygiene reviewer. These modules are designed to be viewed in consecutive order and can be replayed, if needed.
Note: The IPC Hand Hygiene Program currently does not host any hand hygiene reviewer training materials, including courses or resources on MyLearningLink.
Before you begin, confirm with your immediate supervisor that they support you completing the training required to become a hand hygiene reviewer.
If you have support from your immediate supervisor, complete the following five steps.
Read the Guide to Conduct Hand Hygiene Reviews.
Identify your method(s) of data collection (i.e., iPad and/or Paper Tool). View all modules on this page. If you are planning to use only one method of data collection, view the appropriate Module 6: Data Entry – iPad or Module 6: Data Entry – Paper Tool.
Complete the hand hygiene reviewer training self-assessment. A score of 80% or higher is required on the self-assessment. Your score will be displayed at the end of the self-assessment.
After passing the self-assessment, a member of the IPC Hand Hygiene Program will contact you within five (5) business days with further instructions that include setting up a competency check.
After completing the competency check, submit the required forms to have a Clean Hands System account created. These forms and information about your Clean Hands System account will be emailed to you.
Note: Clean Hands System accounts are locked after 90 days of inactivity. If your account is locked, email firstname.lastname@example.org to have it unlocked.
