Hand Hygiene eLearning course free to all healthcare organisations worldwide

Healthcare professionals are on the front lines of caring for patients with confirmed or possible infection with coronavirus (COVID-19). They therefore have an increased risk of exposure during this pandemic. To help minimise their risk of exposure when carrying out their work it is recommended that they follow the Interim Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations for Patients with Suspected or Confirmed Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Healthcare Settings. One part of effective Infection Control is Hand Hygiene.

HMI’s learning and development partner, The Learning Rooms is making their Hand Hygiene eLearning course available for free to all healthcare organisations worldwide. Use of the course is unlimited. Healthcare organisations can host the course on their staff training portal or Learning Management System (LMS). If they do not have an LMS the course will run locally on any computer through a web browser. We will supply them with the eLearning package in a HTML 5, SCORM format.
