Upcoming changes to VICNISS Surgical Site Infection & Surgical Antibiotic Prophylaxis Modules

In addition to these changes, additional updates planned for January 2020 will include information on route of administration (e.g. IV, IM); and confirmation if antibiotics were continued beyond the surgery and if so was it longer than 24 hours. Please take the opportunity to have a look at the web form (click here).

These updates to the VICNISS SSI & SAP surveillance modules around surgical prophylaxis will allow the VICNISS assessment of antibiotics prescribed to reflect prescription is in accordance with the revised Therapeutic Guidelines: Antibiotic V16

We encourage all VICNISS users to provide feedback if you have any questions about the changes.
