GlobalSurg, an international collaboration of surgical researchers

As part of GlobalSurg 2, NTSI is collecting data on surgical site infection rates after elective and emergent abdominal surgery. More than 3,000 GlobalSurg researchers are collecting data from hospitals and medical centers in over 60 countries around the world. The NTSI team will be gathering data from Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago (IL) that will be submitted via the Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) online data collection system and will be included in the GlobalSurg II worldwide study.

Previously, the NTSI team participated in GlobalSurg 1, an international evaluation to determine universal markers of quality in abdominal surgery.
