Surgical Site Infections: Preventing and Managing Complications

Though surgical procedures are designed to help our patients, surgery is a traumatic experience for the human body, and steps should be taken to ensure that the patient is both properly prepared for the procedure and for healing. The risk of complications such as hematoma, seroma, dehiscence, and surgical site infections may be reduced by preoperative optimization. In cases where complications occur, it is vital that clinicians are well-versed in treatment methods, including standard of care interventions, infection control, and advanced treatment methods. Participants in this webinar will:

  • Become familiar with surgical wound complications
  • Be able to describe preoperative steps to reduce complications
  • Be aware of monitoring, diagnosis, and interventions for common surgical site complications
