2019 Webinar Series

Webinar Date Webinar Title Description
31-Jan-2019 13:30 EDT SSIs and Staphylococcus aureus Webinar

Surgical site infections are a common complication of surgery that can result in severe morbidity and mortality. The increasing adoption of NSQIP quality improvement initiatives across Canada has re-focused attention on preventing surgical site infections in many hospitals. Research has demonstrated that one of the most common causative pathogens of surgical site infections is Staphylococcus aureus. This presentation will provide an in-depth discussion of the epidemiology of Staphylococcus aureus surgical site infections, evidence-based prevention methods and current research on the economic burden of these infections, as well as potential cost savings that could be achieved through reduction of incidence.

Preregistration is required by January 29, 2019 and is limited to 175 participants, though many can view the webinar on the same device. Log in information will be sent to participants at a later date. Please see the Orange Registration Button on the home page of our website.

Webinar Series May 15, June 12, June 20, and September 12 10:00 to 11:00 AM MDT

One of the first challenges many organizations confront in exploring the feasibility of a Peer-to-Peer Support Program is the ambiguity surrounding what type of legal protections may be available against disclosure of these communications in legal proceedings like malpractice actions or professional disciplinary hearings, or in employment or college disciplinary proceedings. Our guest speakers will review the guidelines within "Creating a Safe Space" and endeavours to clarify the legal privilege and professional confidentiality considerations of implementing peer-to-peer support programs for health professionals who are emotionally affected by a Patient Safety Incident.
