WHO Guidelines on Hand Hygiene in Health Care – guideline finalisation meeting
Members of the Clean Care is Safer Care core group met in Geneva on 29 Sep-1 Oct 2008 to progress the finalization of the WHO Guidelines on Hand Hygiene in Health Care. The meeting was chaired by Professor Didier Pittet, lead of Clean Care is Safer Care.
During the meeting the Guideline document was carefully revised, with focus on comments from external reviewers and controversial issues. Special attention was paid to the sessions on recommendations and research agenda. Data and lessons learned from testing were presented by the team and some pilot and complementary site coordinators. These were used to revise the content of the Guidelines and confirm the validity of the final recommendations.
