Surgical Site Infection: classification and considerations in prevention
Following on from our recent webinar on ‘Surgical wounds; do’s and don’ts’, Dr Tod Brindle is going to pick up the discussion and present the issue of Surgical Site Infections (SSI), from highlighting the impact of SSI on both patients and healthcare professionals from a wound care perspective, to looking into the key performance attributes that a post-operative dressing should have. Wednesday June 24 7:00 PM CEST
After the webinar you will:
- Have a greater understanding about the economic impact of SSI
- Be able to define the 3 classifications of SSI
- Comprehend the key clinical considerations in pre-operative through to post-operative prevention of surgical site infections
At the end of the webinar Dr Tod Brindle will be joining us live for a Q&A session!
Can you optimise healing with your post-operative dressing change protocol? Surgical care does not end when the surgery ends. Successful outcomes also depend on post-surgical incision care. Wound care dressings are a vital part of the healing equation because post-operative wounds are susceptible to infection and associated complications.
