Promotion of Hand Hygiene: Magic, Hype or Scientific Challenge?

Author(s)Pittet Didier MD; MS
AbstractEditorial: The compliance of healthcare workers (HCWs) with hand hygiene practices is universally low. The challenge of promotion of hand hygiene could be summarized in two simple questions: (1) How can we change the behavior of HCWs? and (2) How can we maintain such change? Predisposing, enabling, and reinforcing factors should be taken into account for the successful promotion of hand hygiene and prevention of nosocomial infections.
