It's time for patients and providers to come together for clean hands – STOP! Clean Your Hands Day returns Thursday, May 5, 2016.
This year, we want patient and providers to come together like never before so we're making Patient and Provider Engagement the theme for STOP! Clean Your Hands Day. This theme will be woven into all of the activities we have planned this year, including a free small package of materials, a pledge campaign and a webinar on May 5.
We’re very excited about the contents of this year’s package. This year is all about patient and provider engagement and we think these stickers and postcards are the perfect way to get people talking. We’re also including materials from our sponsor, GOJO, as well as copies of our award-winning Hands in Healthcare magazine. Quantities are limited to so order yours now!
Don't forget to register for our May 5 webinar (this is a separate step from the STOP! Clean Your Hands Day registration above). Our sponsor GOJO is giving away 100 Hand Hygiene mini-kits to webinar attendees chosen at random so register today and join us May 5.
