The JCYH program is a leader in the development of hand hygiene education within Canada, however other programs and individuals have contributed greatly to the field of hand hygiene. This symposium will provide PHO with an opportunity to invite these “thought leaders” to share their insights with those within the healthcare field. Speakers are being invited from the UK, U.S.A and Ontario. Several of these speakers were present at the JCYH inaugural program symposium five years ago and as a result have history with the program and the regional stakeholders whom the program serves can identify with these renowned leaders in their respective fields. As a result the speakers and the attendees will be able to contribute significantly to the dialogue of the JCYH symposium.
