    The monograph was produced as part of the Consensus Measurement in Hand Hygiene (CMHH) project. The goal of the CMHH project is to identify promising, practical techniques for measuring adherence to hand hygiene guidelines. This monograph is the result of a two-year collaboration involving The Joint Commission and six collaborating organizations: The World Health Organization (WHO) World Alliance for Patient Safety (WAPS), the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology, Inc. (APIC), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), and the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID). The findings and conclusions in this report are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the position of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or any of the other collaborating organizations. The project was funded in part by an unrestricted educational grant from GOJO Industries, Inc., Akron, Ohio, which had no involvement in the design, implementation, analysis, results, or review of reports from the project.
