Wound and Skin and Soft Tissue Morbidity and Mortality Review Workgroup

To address the number and severity of wounds among patients who are reportedly declining or delaying care despite the risk that wounds from injection drug use pose to their safety and well-being, the Substance Use Prevention and Harm Reduction Division of the Philadelphia Department of Public Health and the Health Federation of Philadelphia's SURGE Program is establishing a Wound and Skin and Soft Tissue Morbidity and Mortality Review workgroup.  These 2-hour case reviews will feature a case presentation and are planned for 9:00 am to 11:00 am on the following Thursdays:

  • January 26, 2023
  • March 23, 2023
  • May 25, 2023
  • July 13, 2023
  • September 28, 2023
  • November 30, 2023

This is a closed meeting designed to develop standards of care and increase local capacity for the care of wounds and SSTIs among PWUD. If you have any questions or wish to recommend another colleague from your institution to participate in the SSTI MMR, please direct them to Catherine Abrams, SURGE Program Coordinator at surge@healthfederation.org
