Preventing Infections Webinar Faculty

description

Postoperative wound infections are costly complications associated with any and all orthopedic surgical procedures. This webinar will divide infection control into the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative care period. The webinar will be lecture based reviewing why we do certain things, what are the current practices/novelties, and where are we headed. After the lecture the moderator and faculty will provide case examples that emphasize the key points discussed during the lecture. The faculty will provide a chronological approach with tip and tricks they utilize to prevent wound infections and infection management in the worst case scenarios. This will fill knowledge gaps on infection control from explaining principles/advents of past, present, and future.

Webinar objectives

  1. Describe rationale for preoperative and intraoperative steps taken to minimize development of fracture related infection.
  2. Define the current role of local drug delivery devices for antibiotic elution.
  3. Define the steps necessary to eradicate a fracture related infection.
  4. Determine the role of antibiotic coated intramedullary nail or plate.
