Surgical Site Infections: An Update

A review of current practice in surgical site infection and how future development will be shaped.

31 Mar

Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, 31st March 2015

A joint symposium organised by RCPS Glasgow and RC pathologists, London.  An engaging and informative programme will progress during the day from providing an overview of epidemiology of surgical site infections (SSI), surveillance systems for monitoring surgical site infection to a review of the evidence for current SSI prevention strategies before moving on to examining current practice and challenges in managing infection related to invidual surgical specialties.

The event aims to provide a focus on shaping future development in those various clinical areas.  It is hoped that this programme will be of interest and relevance to the practice of Surgeons, Microbiologists, Infectious Disease Physicians, Infection prevention and control personnel and others involved in patient safety.
