Register now to attend the fourth in our series of webinars on reducing surgical site infections!

Webinar 4 focuses on different aspects of surgical skin preparation and features presentations by three experts in this area.

Our presenters are Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon Mr Kelly Vince, Northland DHB, Dr Anja Werno, Microbiology Medical Director, Canterbury Health Laboratories and a member of the Clinical Leadership Group of the national SSI Improvement Programme (SSIIP), and Shelley Thomas, Charge Nurse Manager, Auckland DHB.

This is a great opportunity to hear these clinicians discuss different aspects of surgical skin preparation, and present and answer questions on surgical skin antisepsis and appropriate hair removal at the surgical site.

Presenters will also answer questions from the audience, which can be emailed in prior, or put to the presenters during the webinar.
