Welcome to the Hand Hygiene Reviewer Training Modules. The ten (10) self-directed modules cover information on key principles and scenarios regarding hand hygiene reviews and the Clean Hands System that will help you become a successful Hand Hygiene Reviewer. The modules are designed to be viewed in consecutive order and can be replayed as many times as needed. For a detailed overview of the hand hygiene reviewer training process, refer to the Becoming a Hand Hygiene Reviewer document.  Complete the following steps:

Step 1

Before you begin, identify your method(s) of data collection (i.e. Paper Tool and/or iPad). According to your method(s) of data collection, view ALL ten (10) modules.  Note: you are not required to view both versions of Module 6: Data Entry unless you choose to do so or if you are planning to use both methods of data collection.  If you are planning to use only one method of data collection, view the appropriate Module 6: Data Entry:

  • Module 6: Data Entry – iPad or
  • Module 6: Data Entry – Paper Tool

Note: To view the modules in full screen mode, move your mouse cursor to the bottom right hand corner of the video screen and click on the “YouTube” symbol. A new window will pop up and that redirects you to the YouTube website. Double click the video window to enter full screen mode.

Step 2

After viewing all modules, complete the mandatory self-assessment based on your method(s) of data collection.  You are required to complete only one of the following self-assessments based on your method(s) of data collection:

  • iPad only
  • Paper Tool only
  • iPad & Paper Tool

A score of 80% or higher is required on the self-assessment. You will receive your score after clicking the “Next” button at the end of the self-assessment.  You can repeat the self-assessment as many times as needed to achieve a passing mark.

Step 3

A member of the IPC Hand Hygiene Program will contact you with further instructions regarding setting up a one-on-one competency check after passing the self-assessment.
