Cardiac surgery implementation manual | Pukapuka aratohu whakahaere poka manawa

This manual provides guidance for implementing and delivering the national cardiac surgery Surgical Site Infection Improvement Programme (SSIIP) in New Zealand. The programme will enable standardisation of data, which can be analysed and reported both locally and nationally.

The intended audiences are: infection prevention and control (IPC) specialists, clinical microbiologists and infectious disease physicians, quality teams, nurses, anaesthetists and surgeons, and all of those involved in the SSIIP at a local level. A multidisciplinary approach is essential so the programme has the appropriate expertise.
