About Healthcare Cleaning Forum

The moment(um) is now

Join us on 16 May 2024 at the Healthcare Cleaning Forum (HCF): a unique 1-day conference dedicated to advancing the crucial field of healthcare environmental hygiene as part of infection prevention control in hospitals and longterm-care institutions. This specialized event focuses on the intersection of environmental cleaning, disinfection, patient safety, and infection prevention and control.

Environmental cleaning and disinfection play pivotal roles in reducing healthcare-associated infections (HAI's). At HCF, we bring together healthcare experts, cleaning professionals, hospital managers, infection prevention specialists, facility managers, and industry leaders to explore the latest trends and challenges shaping this vital sector.

At HCF, we recognize that multiple factors influence the efficiency of cleaning, including procedures, training and education, technology, and materials. This forum serves as a dynamic platform developed in close cooperation with CleanHospitals®, powered by Interclean Amsterdam, to foster collaboration, awareness, and innovation in healthcare environmental hygiene.
