Mayo University Hospital is a member of the WHO Save Lives: Clean Your Hands Initiative Hospitals and as part of that we hold a Hand Hygiene Awareness Day during May of each year to show commitment to improve Patient Safety by practicing better hand hygiene.  

This year the campaign theme is 'Fight Antibiotic Resistance - it's in your Hands’.

The objectives of hosting such an event are:

Irishkidneydiet.ie – An education website for patients with Chronic Kidney Disease

Irishkidneydiet – An education website for patients with Chronic Kidney Disease

Irishkidneydiet.ie is the brain child of a small group of Dietitians from the Renal Interest Group of the Irish Nutrition and Dietetic Institute. The vision behind the website was to create a patient education website covering all aspects of the renal diet for people with chronic kidney disease and their Carers.  For the last number of years Renal patients have been checking out websites available for their condition.
