Abstract

Introduction: Hand hygiene (HH) is a basic health strategy, with low cost and low complexity, being the effective technique to prevent the transmission and infection of pathogens. Since health education brings benefits to HH adherence, it is recommended to continue the actions to raise awareness among professionals and carry out continuing education, reaffirming the need to implement continuous strategies to obtain improvements. Objective: To analyze the scientific production on educational actions on hand hygiene used for the adherence of health professionals. Method: This is an Integrative Review of the literature guided by the guiding question: what are the in-service education strategies carried out on hand hygiene for health professionals and their respective results? The databases consulted were Latin American and Caribbean Health Literature (LILACS), Nursing Database (BDENF), Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied (CINAHL), PUBMed and Scopus. The time frame comprised the period from January 2013 to December 2022. Theoretical articles, review studies, reports of experiences or abstracts of scientific events, dissertations and theses were excluded. Results: The final sample for analysis consisted of 42 articles, divided into four categories according to the type of educational strategy used: multimodal strategy, digital technology, expository presentation and playful strategy. Conclusion: Multimodal interventions promoted an increase in HH adherence, emphasizing the importance of using diverse approaches. Educational strategies that incorporate digital technology have demonstrated improvements in HH adherence, while emphasizing that technology should be seen as an integral part of a set of strategies to optimize MH adherence. Although the expository approaches have shown an improvement in adherence, the need to adapt strategies to each professional group is reinforced. Regarding the playful approach, there was an initial increase in adherence to HH, but regression occurred over time, highlighting the importance of prolonged interventions.
