Hand Hygiene NZ video competition: Deadline extended!

27 Aug 2012 | Infection Prevention & Control

To encourage more teams to enter the HHNZ video competition, the deadline has been extended by one month until Friday 28 September.

The HHNZ video competition seeks entries from groups of hospital-based health care workers that have produced a promotional video to highlight the importance of good hand hygiene practice and the 5 moments approach.

HHNZ encourages teams to come up with compelling, fun, and innovative ways to promote the importance of good hand hygiene practice in our hospitals. An ideal hand hygiene video will:

  • highlight the importance of hand hygiene to patient safety in New Zealand hospitals through the reduction of hospital associated infections
  • demonstrate the 5 moments approach to hand hygiene
  • involve as many individuals in your ward/unit/service area as possible
  • excite and motivate viewers (and those who took part) to improve hand hygiene.

Don’t forget! There are two great prizes to be won:

FIRST PRIZE: $1000 for winning team’s charity of choice
SECOND PRIZE: $200 cinema tickets

More information, competition guidelines and an entry form can be found on the HHNZ news section of the HHNZ website – www.handhygiene.org.nz. The competition closes at 5pm on Friday 28 September 2012.
