I’ll be starting a new round of my “Arming the Donkeys” podcast on Duke’s iTunes U site.
The first in the series, Handwashing and Healthcare, can be found here.
Handwashing and Healthcare
Handwashing is one of the simplest and most effective ways to reduce the risk of infections in hospitals. Yet doctors and other healthcare workers still regularly fall short of compliance guidelines. Dan Ariely talks with David Hofmann of the University of North Carolina about the reasons for low handwashing rates in hospitals and what can be done to improve hand hygiene.
