In connection to World Hand Hygiene Day – Seconds save lives – clean your hands! – on May 5, Tork, an Essity brand, announced that the award-winning Tork VR Clean Hands Training is now available for free on any device.
A study shows that eight out of 10 healthcare professionals would like to improve their hand hygiene compliance. But traditional forms of hand hygiene training are often perceived as uninspiring. Tork Clean Hands Training invites users into a digital world where they can interact and train on the WHO's '5 moments of hand hygiene' in a realistic environment.
Tork VR Clean Hands Training, which was a category winner at last year's Amsterdam Innovation Award 2020, has been developed in collaboration with behavioral scientists, world-leading experts in hand hygiene from the infection Control Program at the University of Geneva Hospitals and Faculty of Medicine Geneva, Switzerland and university hospitals around the world to make it intuitive and efficient as a learning tool.
The addition of a desktop version makes finding time for and being involved in performing hand hygiene training much easier. As part of making the training more accessible for healthcare professionals, the training will also be available in seven languages.
