Thursday, March 25, 2021 11:20 - 12:00

Wound complications can lead to a poor birthing experience but can be preventable.  This session focuses on the principles and prevention of surgical site infection.   A personal patient experience will be presented which inspired the development of a post-caesarean wound care pathway; an example of collaborative working, resulting in positive patient outcomes.
