SSIs and Staphylococcus aureus Webinar

Thursday, January 31, 2019 (1330 Eastern, check your local time zone)
1.0 hour duration
Presented by Dr. Elissa Rennert-May, Calgary

Surgical site infections are a common complication of surgery that can result in severe morbidity and mortality. The increasing adoption of NSQIP quality improvement initiatives across Canada has re-focused attention on preventing surgical site infections in many hospitals. Research has demonstrated that one of the most common causative pathogens of surgical site infections is Staphylococcus aureus. This presentation will provide an in-depth discussion of the epidemiology of Staphylococcus aureus surgical site infections, evidence-based prevention methods and current research on the economic burden of these infections, as well as potential cost savings that could be achieved through reduction of incidence.

Preregistration is required by January 29, 2019 and is limited to 175 participants, though many can view the webinar on the same device. Log in information will be sent to participants at a later date. Please see the Orange Registration Button on the home page of our website
