The surgical site infection (SSI) prevention bundle is more complex and more rapidly evolving when compared to other healthcare-associated prevention bundles and keeping apprised of the latest innovations is often challenging for infection preventionists and perioperative teams. This presentation will highlight some of the more recent innovative practices and technologies, that when used as adjuncts to current surgical care practices, can reduce SSI risk among certain surgical patient populations.
At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
Describe the clinical and financial impacts of SSIs on patients and healthcare facilities
List at least three core components of the current evidence-based SSI prevention bundle
List at least three innovative SSI prevention strategies that may be incorporated into the SSI prevention bundle to help further reduce SSI incidence
Identify several available resources that are helpful for ongoing education regarding evidence-based guidelines, innovations and technologies aimed at SSI reduction
