Surgical Site Infection: classification and considerations in prevention
What is the impact of surgical site infections (SSIs) to both the patient and healthcare professional? Dr Tod Brindle will present and discuss these different perspectives through the wound care lens.
Specifically tackling the issue of surgical site infections (SSI), Tod will highlight the key performance attributes that a post-operative dressing should have.
The webinar will deliver:
- A greater understanding of the economic impact of SSI
- The ability to define the three SSI classifications
- An understanding of the key clinical considerations from pre- to post-operative SSI prevention
- Insight into the right dressing attributes for post-op wound dressings.
The webinar will be followed by an opportunity to ask questions during a live Q&A with Dr Brindle.

Wound care dressings are a vital part of the healing equation because post-operative wounds are susceptible to infection and associated complications.
