Despite recognition that patients carry pathogens on their hands and demonstrate poor hand hygiene practice, little attention has been given to interventions that increase hand hygiene practices of patients. Studies that have attempted to improve patient hand hygiene practice lack sustainability due to dependability on healthcare staff, however no prior studies have considered ways to improve independent patient hand hygiene practice. One such approach is using a multi-modal education intervention centered around patients that will promote patient self-practice.
