Protective equipments for covid 19:Methods for production and instructions

Lack of protective equipment due to covid-19 has led to voluntary production and increased need for (correct) use of protective equipment in elderly care.This project aims to develop visualized instructions for use of protective equipment for elderly care staff in the practical work situation and ensure quality in volontary production.

The project will develop a methodological support to secure own or volunteer-driven production of protective equipment. Visual instructions, directly designed for work situations in the elderly care environment, are developed together with Ängelholm Municipality.

Overall, the project is expected to contribute to increased safety for both staff and patients through increased adherence to basic hygiene routines and quality-assured protective equipments used correctly.
