Evaluating the economics of the Australian National Hand Hygiene Initiative
Graves, Nicholas, Barnett, Adrian, White, Katherine, Jimmieson, Nerina L., Page, Katie, Campbell, Megan, Martin, Elizabeth, Rashleigh-Rolls, Rebecca, Grayson, Lindsay, & Paterson, David (2012) Evaluating the economics of the Australian National Hand Hygiene Initiative. Healthcare Infection, 17, pp. 5-10.
The National Hand Hygiene Initiative, implemented in Australia in 2009, is currently being evaluated for effectiveness and cost-effectiveness by a multidisciplinary team of researchers. Data from a wide range of sources are being harvested to address the research questions. The data are observational and appropriate statistical and economic modelling methods are being used. Decision makers will be provided with new knowledge about how hand hygiene interventions should be organised and what investment decisions are justified. This is novel research and the authors are unaware of any other evaluation of hand hygiene improvement initiatives. This paper describes the evaluation currently underway.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
