We are interested in learning more about how we can prevent wound infections

Full description:

Wound infection following cardiac surgery ranges from a mild infection to a life-threating complication. Our ambition is to co-design a study to reduce wound infections and we are inviting patients (not just cardiac surgical!) to take part. We are at the very start of the research stage and your involvement will help shape the direction of involvement but as a guide involvement would include completing 3-4 surveys (the questionnaire would be emailed or posted) and attendance at two (2) workshops (currently pencilled in for January and May, with venue either in London or Leicester) and coordinated by the Cardiothoracic Interdisciplinary Research Network (CIRN)
