October 16, 2023 (press release) –

GP PRO recently hosted Devin Jopp, EdD, MS, Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) CEO, at its Atlanta headquarters.

Jopp met with GP PRO representatives to share his perspectives on the current state of hand hygiene in healthcare and what is needed to advance positive change. He also called upon infection prevention leaders to work with APIC in providing tools to help improve hand hygiene compliance.

“It’s easy to think we just need frontline workers to be completely compliant in their hand hygiene in order to reduce healthcare-associated infections (HAIs),” said Jopp. “But both the problem and the solution are far more complex than that. We also need to look at support staff, patients, and even visitors and determine if we are providing adequate training and monitoring to ensure all hands are clean hands. And this, I believe, requires a culture of leadership in which hand hygiene is emphasized, practiced, and celebrated from the top down and at every level of the organization.”

As part of its partnership with APIC, GP PRO has launched a new video series with actionable insights for creating a culture of safety and compliance within healthcare facilities. Titled IPC Touchpoints, the six-part series includes in-depth interviews with a variety of industry experts on improving the infection control process. The video series can be viewed on GP PRO’s YouTube channel.
