Abstract

This study explored whether preparation for a hand-sanitizing relay effected nursing students’ ability to recall the WHO six-step Hand Hygiene technique 12 months later. There was no significant difference in recall between those who participated in the relay with those who did not (p=0.736). The most frequently missed step was Step 3 (palm to palm with finger interlaced). Our results suggest that regular feedback may be an important additional component in future interventions.
