Project JOINTS Free Call Series

Listen to calls with Project JOINTS faculty, participants, and guests and learn how to sustain effective implementation of interventions to prevent surgical site infection for hip and knee arthroplasty.
"The [Project JOINTS] calls were the best. Listening to what other people were doing and hearing about their struggles taught us so much. It was nice to have all that discussion [and get] all that input. Knowing that IHI and the people on the calls knew what they were talking about made it easier to go back to my team and say, 'I think we should try this.'"
