Course description

The focus of this course will be infection prevention strategies in the care of postoperative patients.  Because care after surgery is critical in the prevention of surgical site infection (SSI), the intent of this conference is to reach out to healthcare providers that commonly care for post-op patients and standardize care after the hospital stay.  Topics will include basic infection prevention strategies such as isolation and outbreak containment; wound assessment and care, including product demonstration; prevention of pressure ulcers; antimicrobial stewardship; and transitions of care between acute and long-term care facilities.
