3M is on a mission to tackle preventable Surgical Site Infections (SSIs). While progress has been made to reduce SSIs, this is one complication that still occurs too frequently, bringing unnecessary suffering and imposing a heavy financial burden on the healthcare system. We know even one infection is one too many, and we’re ready to arm you for battle!
To continue to support clinicians in their fight against healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), 3M wanted to gain a better understanding of beliefs and perceptions they hold about the current reality and future potential of infection prevention. So we commissioned a survey of 650 U.S. infection preventionists and clinicians about their attitudes and beliefs about infection prevention trends, challenges and best practices. Watch this webinar to learn what clinicians had to say.
SSIs are complex problems, and complex problem solving requires big picture thinking. We’ve tackled challenges across industries—from aerospace to nanotechnology—and now we’re applying our breakthrough scientific approach to help you and your hospital fight SSIs from every angle.
