FIT: Feedback Intervention Trial

This is a cluster randomised controlled trial (CRCT) comparing the Cleanyourhands Campaign, with and without feedback in ICUs & General Medical/Acute Care of the Elderly Units (GM/ACE) in 16 hospitals. The primary outcome is Hand Hygiene (HH). Secondary outcomes are Healthcare-Associated Infections (HCAI) mainly from routine data, and cost effectiveness. Results will be extrapolated nationally. The study design will be practical with a feedback intervention and a package of simple measures of HH and HCAI suitable for routine use in the NHS. Sheldon Stone (UCL Medical School) is the principal investigator. Chris Fuller is the research fellow.
