Orthopaedic surgery implementation manual | Te aratohu mahi hāparapara kōiwi

17th February, 2022

This manual provides guidance for the implementation and delivery of the national Surgical Site Infection Improvement Programme (SSIIP) for orthopaedic surgery in New Zealand. The programme will enable standardisation of data so that it 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 to ensure the programme has the appropriate expertise.
