NYSPFP SSI Webinar: Reducing Hysterectomy SSIs Using a Bundled Approach

Thursday, February 22, 2018
7:00 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.
On February 22, NYSPFP will host its first educational session dedicated solely to reducing hysterectomy-related surgical site infections (SSIs). In response to hospital requests for targeted interventions for hysterectomy patients, NYSPFP has invited Linda L. Fan, MD, FACOG, from the Yale School of Medicine, to review the evidence and impact of a bundled approach to reducing hysterectomy SSIs, including special consideration for skin preparation when operating in or near mucosal surfaces. She also will share the protocols that have been developed at Yale. This webinar kicks off NYSPFP’s efforts to spread the success of the NYSPFP Advanced Colon SSI Bundle’s impact on SSI rates for additional procedures.


Linda L. Fan, MD, FACOG, Assistant Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Services; Director, Gynecology Section; Co-chair Gynecologic Services Quality Assurance Committee at Yale School of Medicine
