Symmetry offers the most accepted hand hygiene formulas on the market. These formulas contribute significantly to increased compliance. To further maximize compliance, Symmetry has introduced the Symmetry Behavior Modification System (SBMS).
SBMS is a set of unique, cost-effective tools, based on six key tenets, designed to INSPIRE hand hygiene compliance. The goal of SBMS is to provide tools that capture attention in the moment, driving an immediate hand hygiene event to take place.
Behavioral scientists study the thoughts, motivations, and social influences that impact human behavior. Studies have shown that interventions like color, mirrors, floor decals, flashing signs, and product placement can have a direct effect on behavior.
Symmetry collaborated with New York Time bestselling author Dr. Adam Alter, PhD to develop behavior modification tools that improve hand hygiene practices.
Unlike negative motivators, SBMS is based on six key tenets that offer a positive approach designed to inspire. Each tenet offers a unique way to drive compliance.
The disposition to do good
Others’ expectations and/or requirements
Willingness to accept responsibility and comply
A change in form, substance, or position of something
Strong feelings towards something
Instructional and guided statements to prompt action
SBMS includes unique placards and signs with messages designed to encourage proper hand hygiene practices.
In a study conducted on sanitizer dispensers outside the patient rooms, dispensers with Symmetry behavior modification placards were used around three times as often as dispensers without the placards.
