Auditor training and validation


For the NHHI, hand hygiene compliance is audited by direct observation of healthcare workers by specially trained auditors. There are two categories of hand hygiene auditors: Gold Standard Auditors and General Auditors.

The Commission is currently in the final stages of consultation with the states and territories, and the private sector, to develop a new auditor training framework for General Auditors and Gold Standard Auditors. The new framework and supporting resources will be available by the end of April 2023. The Commission will continue to provide information on the status of this project on this website.
