The ‘OneTogether’ conference was recently held at Vox Conference Centre in Birmingham and was a welcome return to face-to-face education for delegates, offering an insight into surgical site infection (SSI) improvement strategies.
Kate Woodhead RGN DMS provides an overview of the key highlights.
OneTogether is a partnership between leading professional organisations with an interest in the prevention of SSIs. Their mission is to promote and support the spread and adoption of best practice to prevent SSIs across the surgical patient pathway. By connecting UK infection prevention and perioperative associations, key industry partners and the healthcare community, they strive to improve overall patient care.
The organisations represented and working in partnership on OneTogether resources are the Association for Perioperative Practice, The Infection Prevention Society, The College of Operating Department Practitioners, the Royal College of Nursing, the Central Sterilising Club, as well as 3M, who support and co-ordinate activities.
