CHA is partnering with the Connecticut Surgical Quality Collaborative to host a conference dedicated to learning how to reduce surgical site infections. The program starts with a patient who will discuss the repercussions of a surgical site infection. Keynote speaker Patch Dellinger, MD, a national leader in the science of surgical infection reduction, will be transferring that knowledge to help hospitals avoid infections after difficult surgeries that are at risk for infection. Dr. Dellinger will also utilize a case study that takes a patient from booking through surgery, with the intent of minimizing surgical site infections. In addition, participants will hear from the surgical teams at Yale-New Haven Hospital and Stamford Hospital, which have successfully reduced their infection frequencies.
