NOSEC: National Observation Study of the Effectiveness of the Clean Your Hands Campaign

This observation study provides an independent assessment of the cleanyourhands campaign. Questionnaires are sent out on a six monthly basis to infection control eams at NHS acute trusts in England and Wales. Questions review the level of implementation of the cleanyourhands campaign and the monthly number of hospital related infections. The consumption of soaps and alcohol hand rubs for each Trust is also collected separately from NHS logistics. The completed study will show how implementation varies between trusts, which factors predict success and whether the campaign is sustainable over time. 

Sheldon Stone (UCL Medical School) is the principal investigator. Chris Fuller is the research fellow.
