Infection control is a shared concern. Therefore, the SureWash Hand Hygiene App engages patients and family members in a conversation about hand hygiene and infection control. As a result of gamifying the training, patients find the hand hygiene training an interactive and positive experience both in the hospital and at home. The app is also beneficial for training non-clinical staff in the healthcare setting.
The live video image is shown to users on a mobile phone screen and the image overlaid with real time feedback on their progress (augmented reality). In addition, the Reporting Suite on SureWash.NET allows regulatory bodies to track and asses user’s learning progress. Therefore, this can help to reach hand hygiene proficiency.
However, as a result of cameras on mobile phones varying in quality, the standard of the SureWash APP will differ depending on your model/brand. The APP is a solution for the general public, Universities or large organisations looking to learn and memorise the correct hand washing technique to help prevent respiratory illnesses. We recommend that healthcare professionals use the SureWash APP for practicing the WHO hand hygiene technique. This will support your overall training on the SureWash GO or ELITE.
The new SureWash LTI tool allows you to integrate SureWash into your Canvas LMS. As a result, this is ideal for Universities looking to incorporate hand hygiene training as a module. SureWash will help to deliver practical training to the WHO protocol, enabling nursing students to train in hand hygiene remotely, with objective real-time feedback provided to them. Conveniently, each time a student completes their training on the SureWash Hand Hygiene APP, progress will be updated on canvas and grades/scores will be sent to the instructors grade book.
