Stopsurgicalsiteinfection.com is a comprehensive resource for healthcare professionals aiming to prevent surgical site infection (SSI). Its mission is to improve patient outcomes by providing an educational forum to discuss clinically proven methods to reduce the incidence of SSI.

Prevention strategies built upon evidence-based practices have been developed and implemented by many healthcare organizations to reduce infection rates; however, the problem of SSI persists, and new evidence for SSI reduction strategies continues to emerge. Stopsurgicalsiteinfection.com makes current SSI prevention research available by providing summaries of clinical studies that investigate the effect of interventions on SSI rates. Presentation materials from Applied Medical's “Reducing SSI” symposium series, in addition to prevention guidelines, pertinent legislation, organizations and initiatives, are just some of the resources available that give healthcare professionals a comprehensive framework to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs.

Join in this important effort to help others reduce SSI by submitting your success stories.
