This year's theme is: Clean Care Conversations.
Whether you’re a patient, visitor, provider or worker in a healthcare setting—cleaning your hands is one of the best ways to prevent infection. Clean care saves lives.
Every year 220,000 Canadian patients (approximately one in nine) develop a hospital-acquired infection during their stay in hospital. An estimated 8,000 of those patients will lose their lives.
Learn how to start a compassionate clean care conversation with your healthcare provider, patient, or colleague.
