OneTogether is a partnership between leading professional organisations, who have a shared interest in reducing the risk of surgical site infection (SSI). Our annual conference is free to attend, and brings together hundreds of clinicians from across the UK and further afield, with places on a strictly limited basis.
The fifth annual conference for OneTogether will see the launch of our third Quality Improvement Resource, which is focused on the surgical environment. Based on the latest scientific evidence, guidance around theatre ventilation, movement in and out of theatres and cleaning processes will be shared.
