Conducting a STOP STICKS Campaign

The STOP STICKS campaign is a communication intervention aimed at raising awareness among health care workers about their risk of workplace exposure to bloodborne pathogens from needlesticks and other sharps-related injuries. This campaign has demonstrated positive impact on the knowledge, behaviors, and attitudes of health care workers.

The campaign guidance and resources presented are intended to guide you in developing a successful campaign tailored to your facility's needs. You may choose to conduct a complete campaign, or only use certain components, depending on the needs and resources available at your facility. The STOP STICKS campaign may be presented as a stand-alone initiative, or it may be tied with other initiatives, such as introduction of a new safety device or an annual refresher to remind staff of the hazards associated with sharps injuries.
