SureWash takes a modern approach to delivering infection prevention and control (IPC) training in the healthcare setting. The engaging, interactive software system uses a live video camera to assess the users hand motions/technique. To help users improve their technique, real-time feedback is also provided throughout the training. SureWash shifts learning from the classroom setting into the hospital environment, making training available 24/7. We want quality training and retraining to be accessible for all healthcare workers, patients and visitors. To offer a complete solution, the lesson and quiz function allows for custom content to be delivered also. Infection control personnel can then access users training data on SureWash.Net. As a result, this enables the IPC team to evaluate and monitor hand hygiene progress and to guarantee positive results.
Hand hygiene is a critical component of infection prevention and control training. However, we are aware that teaching hand hygiene is time consuming and it can be difficult to generate enthusiasm. Nevertheless, repetition of the technique is critical to learning. As a result, SureWash uses gamification to make training fun and engaging by incorporating a series of levels into learning. Training is delivered in short sessions to encourage a “practice-rest-repeat” technique. This is proven to be the most effective way to integrate the habit of good hand hygiene into the users muscle memory. Above all, we aim to make training accessible for all at times convenient to employees.
