Ethicon continues successful Professional Education Burden of Infection Symposiums at J&J sites in the UK

Ethicon are hosting two professional education symposiums to increase attendees understanding of the socio-economic burden of Surgical Site Infections

In partnership with the Johnson & Johnson Institute, Ethicon UK are hosting two Professional Education events at Johnson & Johnson MedTech sites, designed to increase attendees’ understanding of the socio-economic burden of Surgical Site Infections (SSIs) and teach approaches to mitigate their impact.

This symposium will increase attendees’ understanding of SSIs and their associated socio-economic burden, risk factors and common guidelines for prevention. Supported by an expert faculty, delegates will develop knowledge on how to address such related challenges whilst delivering system savings and value-based procuring.

These specialised programmes will also introduce Ethicon's latest technologies to support improved patient care and enhance understanding of how the tech can also support creating a more sustainable pathway and solutions for how to reach sustainability goals.

Led by an expert faculty, the symposium will explore a holistic approach to addressing the challenges within healthcare systems. This faculty includes Professor David Leaper, Professor for the Department of Wound Healing, Mr Giles Bond-Smith, General Emergency & HPB Consultant at Oxford University Hospital, Gary Welch, Director of Procurement & Supply Chain at Oxford University Hospital and Lisa Butcher, Infection Prevention & Control Lead at Oxford University Hospital.
