dc.description.abstractSpecific Aims To identify specific triggers that lead community pharmacists to perform hand hygiene and to identify hand hygiene methods utilized based on situation type. Methods In this IRB approved study, a questionnaire was administered electronically to pharmacists through RedCap(™). Questions included multiple choice and Likert-type to identify specific triggers that pharmacists encounter that lead them to perform hand hygiene and if applicable, which method of hand hygiene they use. Data analysis was performed using STATA 14.2 (College Station, Texas). Main Results The survey was completed by 105 pharmacists. Of the community-based pharmacist subgroup (N=61), 100% selected some form of hand hygiene after using the restroom. Prior to putting on gloves and administering an immunization, 65.5% selected a recommended form of hand hygiene (hand wash with water and soap or alcohol-based hand rub) while 22.4% selected no hand hygiene. After giving an immunization, 66.6 % use a recommended form of hand hygiene while 22.8% (13/57) use no hand hygiene. 42.9% use no hand hygiene after using the cash register. Conclusions Overall, performance of hand hygiene varied among pharmacists for potential triggers. Responses showed that if hand-hygiene was completed in response to a trigger, it was not always a recommended form of hand hygiene. Based off this preliminary research, further research is needed to examine pharmacists’ triggers for hand hygiene and methods of hand hygiene.en_US
