Tork® Interactive Clean Hospital Training and Tork Clean Hands Training were named Innovation of the Year at the ISSA Show 2021 North America in Las Vegas. The two free virtual trainings from Tork, the global leader in workplace hygiene and an Essity brand, help address two key needs in healthcare: improving surface cleaning and hand hygiene compliance, both of which support infection prevention and control, and ultimately, contribute to better patient outcomes.
By digitizing best practices in surface cleaning and hand hygiene into easy to access and easy to understand comprehensive trainings, Tork supports the transfer of critical knowledge to environmental services (EVS), infection prevention and control, and all other healthcare professionals.
The trainings were created alongside industry experts and leading behavioral scientists and designed to follow industry best practices in an engaging way via gamification. These trainings are available in multiple languages for a broad reach and improved retention.
“We are pleased to announce that our Tork Interactive Clean Hospital Training and Tork Clean Hands Training were awarded the highly prestigious Innovation of the Year at ISSA Show North America 2021.” said Don Lewis, President of Professional Hygiene at Essity.
“We know that proper surface cleaning and hand hygiene compliance are important methods of controlling infection in healthcare facilities and are proud to contribute to the education of EVS, infection prevention and control, and all other healthcare professionals, which leads to improved patient outcomes,” he completed.
Tork Interactive Clean Hospital Training is an innovative free desktop tool designed to make the training process for EVS staff engaging and efficient.
Tork Clean Hands Training invites users into a virtual world where they interact and train in a realistic, safe environment that aims to boost hand hygiene compliance. Available for free in desktop and in virtual reality via an app that can be downloaded from the AppStore or GooglePlay on a VR compatible smartphone.
