What’s Your Hand In It? is a Dragon’s Den-style competition where healthcare organizations submit their brilliant idea for evidenced-based hand hygiene improvement. We selected five entries who will be invited to pitch their ideas via WebEx to our panel of judges. The pitch to our panel of judges will take place virtually on STOP! Clean Your Hands Day - May 5, 2014. The panel of judges will provide instant feedback on your pitch and the winner will be announced live after all three pitches have been made.

Watch all the hand hygiene idea pitches to our judges: http://bit.ly/10cZ7SZ
