Improving Infection Prevention and Control Practices Using Participatory Visual Methods

The purpose of this quality improvement project was to determine the feasibility of using provider-led participatory visual methods to scrutinize 4 hospital units’ infection prevention and control practices.

Methods included provider-led photo walkabouts, photo elicitation sessions, and post-improvement photo walkabouts. Nurses readily engaged in using the methods to examine and improve their units’ practices and reorganize their work environment.
