Hand Hygiene Auditor Training and Validation
Annual validation is a method of ensuring all auditors remain up-to-date with their knowledge of the 5 Moments definitions and audit practices. This in turn ensures valid and reliable data being submitted as a part of the National Hand Hygiene Initiative.
It is the responsibility of each Organisation Administrator to ensure all their auditors submitting data to HHA have completed the auditor online learning package and collected 100 moments in the last twelve months. Auditors who do not meet these criteria are required to follow the Lapsed Auditor Pathway (see link). This is a HHA requirement, and if not met will result in the auditor being removed from the Hand Hygiene Compliance Application (HHCApp), resulting in an inability to enter data.
Please remember that the pre-workshop online learning module is a mandatory component of auditor training, so each trained auditor needs to have this in their LMS profile when HHA are reviewing their status as an auditor.
It is also important to ensure that all newly trained auditors are registered as having completed their training on the HHA auditor register: http://www.hha.org.au/ForHealthcareWorkers/workshops/hha-auditor-register.aspx
