Don’t Miss This Month’s Free CMM Hand Hygiene Webinar

October 5, 2021 Don’t Miss This Month’s Free CMM Hand Hygiene Webinar

Registration is now open for this month’s free one-hour webinar from CMM on October 20— Navigating the Intersection of Hand/Surface/Environmental Hygiene.

Continued vigilance in cleaning and infection control protocols remains important, and that vigilance starts with hand hygiene. However, there is more to consider in implementing hand hygiene best practices than you may realize. Learn how the connection between clean hands, clean surfaces, and a clean environment can save lives.

Join J. Darrel Hicks, MESRE, CHESP, past president of the Healthcare Surfaces Institute and a nationally known infection prevention expert, and Mike Canales, program director for the Healthcare Facilities Leadership degree program at Owensboro Community and Technical College in Kentucky, for this one-hour presentation. Attendees will ask the speakers questions in a live Q&A session at the end of the program.
