In healthcare, clean hands and surfaces help save lives by preventing infection. However, traditional forms of surface and hand hygiene trainings are often viewed as time consuming, difficult to schedule and uninspiring, which can lead to low attendance and retention. Environmental services (EVS) teams, along with infection control and healthcare professionals, are always seeking new ways to improve surface and hand hygiene compliance.
To support EVS, infection control and healthcare professionals who are working hard to protect their patients and themselves, a continued focus on surface and hand hygiene compliance is critical. Given these challenges, Tork®, the leader in workplace hygiene, from Essity, developed two free interactive training tools—Tork Interactive Clean Hospital Training and Tork Clean Hands Training.
These tools help address essential training needs, efficiently and effectively, and serve as another example of how Tork is committed to helping customers with innovative services and products, improving performance through sustainable hygiene management.
Tork Interactive Clean Hospital Training
Tork Interactive Clean Hospital Training is an innovative desktop tool, available in over 25 languages, that is designed to make the training process for cleaning healthcare facilities more efficient and engaging. The training is based on the Association for the Health Care Environment’s Practice Guidance for Health Care Environmental Cleaning and helps ensure that cleaning staff fulfill tasks to industry standards. What’s more, the training is accompanied by a comprehensive “Train-the-Trainer” tool, which helps EVS leaders train their teams efficiently and most importantly, effectively.
Tork Clean Hands Training
Tork Clean Hands Training, available on desktop and in virtual reality (VR), invites users into a virtual world where they interact and train in a realistic, safe environment that aims to boost hand hygiene compliance. This training is based on the World Health Organization (WHO)’s ‘5 moments of hand hygiene’ and helps bring hand hygiene compliance to life through gamification, in a cutting-edge experience, relevant to our digital age. The VR app capitalizes on research that suggests VR trainings are seen as more engaging and inspiring.
By digitizing best practices in surface and hand hygiene, Tork is helping transfer critical information to EVS, infection control, and healthcare professionals in an engaging way, encouraging greater participation and enabling people to learn on their time. Never has there been such a strong need for more hygienic and safer healthcare facilities. Tools like these help create hygienic environments and prevent infection, and ultimately, contribute to better patient outcomes.
