    Hand hygiene has had a high prominence in the context of COVID-19 during the past year. World Hand Hygiene Day, celebrated each year on the 5 May, and led by the World Health Organization (WHO), presents an annual opportunity to keep this important patient safety intervention firmly on the international and national agenda beyond a global pandemic. This year we are prompted not to forget the critical times for hand hygiene, and particularly the valuable role that healthcare workers and all those who support them play, in achieving effective hand hygiene action at the point of care.

    It's good to shine a light on certain important interventions such as hand hygiene in healthcare, and this is why such days exist. WHO, with its May 5 annual campaign on hand hygiene in health care https://www.who.int/infection-prevention/campaigns/clean-hands/en/, and this complementary Global Handwashing day campaign. Both can and should work in synergy - and this is part of sustaining improvement. It's no accident that both campaigns occur in the months they do - May 5th (representing the 5 digits on a hand and reinforcing the 5 Moments) and October (tenth month, ten digits). Together, at t

    Great point. Interested to hear others thoughts. Sitting here in the Patient Safety Learning conference today it’s clear we need both - exec leadership is critical for a safety culture (and this is of course backed up by studies), but growing acknowledgement of the importance of distributed leadership & role modelling and empowerment at different levels of a health system.

    My first thought on coming to this community was, is it a bit abstract to be talking about leadership in a sub-community of a patient safety learning platform, when in the real world leadership is part of, or influences so many of the other sub-communities (culture, patient engagement, patient safety learning itself, to name but a few). However, I can definitely see the value in creating a special space to explore and stimulate some cross-fertilisation of ideas and learning on leadership for patient safety. It would be great to get some ideas flowing on how patient safety leaders across all le

    The paper summarises the literature on the use of simulation with many examples of application in the field of patient safety. It explores the evidence on the impact of simulation. It goes on to suggest four areas where QI and simulation practitioners interested in closer integration of their fields might focused: Read - add articles found in quality/safety or simulation journals that integrate both fields onto your reading list. Study - seek out professional development opportunities: courses, workshops, conferences in QI methodology or simulation/debriefing. Collaborate - iden
