REACH Study 2014–2018

Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and Wesley Medical Research were lead partners in the REACH study, funded by a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Partnership grant (GNT1076006). This study aimed to evaluate the impact of a novel evidence-based environmental cleaning bundle initiative on the transmission of healthcare associated infections. Information about the study, and our project partners, is here.

In 2016-2017, eleven major hospitals received tailored training and support from the study team to implement and evaluate the cleaning bundle intervention. The final study results have either been submitted for publication or are in the late stages of preparation for publication.
