ATLANTA, June 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- GP PRO, a leading provider of hygienic dispensing systems for healthcare and other industries, will share industry-leading hand hygiene insights at the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology Conference (APIC), June 14-16 in Portland, Oregon. The interactive education will benefit healthcare provider hand hygiene which is known to positively influence infection control and prevention.
GP PRO will host in-booth skin health assessments and demonstrations of hand hygiene compliance systems on the market.
"From arming oneself with industry knowledge, to keeping up with the most effective hand hygiene practices and leading-edge products, infection prevention is a shared responsibility," said Amna Handley, MSN, RN, CIC, FNP and GP PRO director of clinical development. "By empowering attendees with resources and education, we can help them return to their respective hospitals with actionable ways to enhance their hand hygiene programs."
GP PRO recently announced a new strategic relationship with Clean Hands – Safe Hands, a hand hygiene compliance technology company. Team members will be on hand to provide live demonstrations of the system and share initiatives on which the two companies will collaborate aimed at reducing hospital-acquired infections (HAIs).
Versus Technology, a GP PRO partner since 2013, will also be on-site to discuss its hand hygiene technology as well as its complementary suite of integrated solutions to enhance safety and workflow.
GP PRO is featured in this year's poster presentations, comparing the efficacy of Triclosan and Benzalkonium Chloride soaps in light of the increased scrutiny over the use of Triclosan as an active ingredient in antimicrobial hand washes and hand rubs. GP PRO is sponsoring a session on this topic titled, "What the Infection Preventionist Needs to Navigate Regulatory Changes around Antimicrobial Hand Products" on Thursday, June 15, at 10:15 a.m.
