Glove awareness resources

Changes you can make:

  • to not use gloves to give vaccinations
  • to not use gloves when feeding people
  • to not use gloves when entering a patient’s home 
  • to not use gloves automatically when giving IV medication
  • to not use gloves when comforting patients.

Of course, the more changes you are able to pledge to make - the greater the impact.

Resources for your workplace

We have designed some simple resources for you to use in your workplace and online to raise awareness of appropriate glove use. These can be found below and include posters, a leaflet, social media downloads and a Teams background.
