Leadership Toolkit

Infection Prevention & Control

The Hand Hygiene Leadership Toolkit was developed to help leaders establish team-based hand hygiene initiatives. It uses the multi-modal framework recommended by the World Health Organization which highlights five key strategies. Focusing on these five strategies will help to increase hand hygiene engagement, foster a culture of improved compliance, and promote sustainability. These strategies include:

  1. Creating an Environment for Success
  2. Training and Education
  3. Evaluation and Feedback
  4. Reminders in the Workplace
  5. Building a Supportive Culture

This toolkit addresses each of these strategies and includes background information, resource links, staff engagement activities and templates to help you inspire your team. Many of the activities showcased have been used by teams across AHS. Please utilize the resources below to enhance hand hygiene initiatives in your department.
