GlobalSurg 2 Update 

The latest GlobalSurg study, ‘Determining the worldwide epidemiology of surgical site infections after gastrointestinal surgery’ finished data collection at the of last year.

By the end of the data collection period over 16,000 patient records had been entered into the study – an amazing collaborative effort by all members of GlobalSurg!

For the first time, we also conducted a data validation study after the main data collection period to ensure the dataset is accurate and robust.

Our data analysis team are now hard at work analysing all this data and producing a manuscript draft which will shortly be submitted to a major journal for peer review.

We’ll keep everyone updated via this newsletter and Twitter 

Remember you can view all GlobalSurg publications via our the publications page and our new google scholar page
