We’re looking for patients to help raise awareness of the damaging impact that surgical infections can have on people, and guide improvements.
Have you ever been in surgery and contracted an infection? Do you want to share your experience anonymously and help create change? Take part in this survey: Experiences of Surgical Infections
Patient Safety Learning and Mölnlycke* are creating a short video that will, for the first time, profile the experiences of people who have contracted an infection after surgery. The video will include short written testimonials from people about what it means to contract an infection, and the impact it can have. The information from this survey will help to inform this video, with the results being highlighted as patient testimonials to anonymously profile your experiences with infections.
The finalised video will be shared with policymakers, MPs and the media to bring greater attention to the damaging impact of infections on patients, and increase awareness of the importance of prioritising this area of clinical care. It will also be used more broadly by Mölnlycke within both educational and promotional materials to ensure that the profile of infections are raised across a range of audiences. We hope this will bring positive change to the current approach to the management of infections, and ensure future patients have the greatest chance to avoid contracting surgical infections.
