Posts Tagged ‘Hand Hygiene Compliance’

hurdlesSo last week I managed to finish collecting the in-situ data for Study 3 which explores the link between Human Behaviour and Hand Hygiene – and has been a great opportunity to learn more about the day-to-day reality of life on an NHS Acute ward, which really brings context to the other elements of my work, about auditing, technology and Hand Hygiene compliance.

I now have no more data to formally collect, which is a strange feeling, as there are actually so many more questions to ask – however I am at the stage of the PhD process where discipline has to step in, and the doors have to close on further investigation in the interests of ensuring the thesis is written, conclusions are drawn, and a line is drawn in the sand. BUT THEN….then the future research can be planned! 

And that is where March comes in – as I have a number of exciting meetings set up then, to help guide the potential future threads which are starting to spin out of my thesis already and into the wider Infection Prevention community.  Will be great to talk about what has happened so far, to hear what other people have been up to, and to discuss what could happen next. There is so much still left to do in this field, but continued collaboration is of paramount importance to ensure we build on what has gone before, and prevent re-inventing the wheel. Things look bright…

For now, I have my thesis writing motivation plan – the day it is handed in, I am getting an entire cake to eat. Oh yes. You heard right. Because deep down, we all want to be Mary Berry when we grow up don’t we?
