The 10K: 10,000 Reasons to Race for Infection Prevention
Each year, 10,000 patients in BC suffer from post-surgical infections. Supported by the BCPSQC and the Specialist Services Committee, the 10K is a provincial quality improvement initiative that aims to reduce surgical site and urinary tract infections in BC by 50% by November 2016. Come and hear more about how 14 teams are racing to prevent infections and discuss how it fits with other surgical improvement initiatives in our province.
