NYSPFP Webinar: New Evidence-Based Strategies to Reduce Colon SSI

Thursday, March 2, 2017
7:00 a.m.–8:00 a.m.
On Thursday, March 2, 2017, from 7:00 a.m.–8:00 a.m., NYSPFP will host a webinar to introduce the newest element in the NYSPFP Advanced Colon Bundle: mechanical bowel preparation in combination with oral antibiotics for patients undergoing elective colon surgery.

The webinar will feature Christopher Mantyh, MD, FACS/FASCRS, Professor of Surgery, Chief of Colorectal Surgery, and Chief of Quality at the Duke University Medical Center. Dr. Mantyh will review how a colon bundle was implemented at Duke University Medical Center. The bundle implemented by his team includes mechanical bowel preparation in combination with oral antibiotics, in addition to many elements in the NYSPFP Advanced Colon Bundle. Dr. Mantyh will also share the bundle’s impact on colon surgical site infection (SSI) rates and provide an overview of the evidence supporting the newest element in the NYSPFP Advanced Colon Bundle.

NYSPFP staff will review the updated NYSPFP tools designed to support hospitals’ work on reducing colon SSIs and monitor implementation of the revised Advanced Colon Bundle.
