Hand Hygiene – What’s stopping you?

Behavioural change is a crucial component in making hand washing a habit. NES are delighted to showcase our whiteboard animation ‘Hand Hygiene – What’s Stopping You? The animation is just one of the educational tools developed as part of the forthcoming Scottish Infection Prevention & Control Education Pathway.

The animation can be used locally as part of in-house training tools and we encourage you to consider the key messages and spread the word to help effect a change and make handwashing a habit.

Your actions can stop infections spreading to people in your care, to you and to your family. Carrying out hand hygiene consistently, correctly and regularly at key moments is everyone’s responsibility. Watch the animation at the links below to find out more about What’s Stopping You?
