Determining the worldwide epidemiology of surgical site infections after abdominal surgery
All consecutive (i.e. one after the other) patients undergoing elective or emergency gastrointestinal surgery should be included in the study. There is no minimum number of patients per centre, so long as all eligible patients during the study period are included.
Individual hospital teams (up to three people) will collect data for two weeks. Patients will be identified and data collected on all patients during the selected two-week period, with 30-day follow-up.
You can choose any consecutive two weeks during the study period (Jan – July 2016), so that there is maximum flexibility. Multiple teams covering different time periods from a single institution are encouraged.
30 datapoints per patient will be collected via a secure online website.
