Bi-Annual Cardiac SSI Network Meetings (June and December)
Our London-based meetings offer roundtable discussions of adult and paediatric cardiac SSI, and presentations are a mix of case-studies, innovation, trends and SSI surveillance topics.
This is a forum to collectively review and comment on research and national initiatives to reduce the incidence of SSI.
If you are a healthcare professional with an interest in SSI surveillance in cardiac surgery or implant devices we would be delighted to hear from you!
