On May 5th, International Hand Hygiene Day, the Health Service Executive, with the Royal College of Physicians in Ireland, launched their updated national hand hygiene guidelines and a core infection prevention and control knowledge and skills handbook in the RCPI, Dublin. The event was hosted by Dr Philip Crowley, National Director Quality Improvement Division HSE.
It was an opportunity for local Hand Hygiene and Infection Prevention Control Quality Improvement Initiatives to be shared and discussed and we were delighted that SureWash was mentioned more than once during these presentations!

See attached for the message from Dr Rob Cunney Clinical Lead HCAI and AMR Clinical Programme.
