The surveillance of surgical wound infection (SWI) may be undertaken for a number of purposes which include evaluating changes in practice, studying the epidemiology of SWI and for assessing the quality of health care.
Purchasers require this information from providers as an indicator of the quality of care.
Surveillance of SWI can also have a role in audit, by setting standards and comparing observed practice with agreed standards.
The level of SWI can be the standard, and the collection, analysis and interpretation of data (undertaken during surveillance) could be the means for measuring the standard.
In a surveillance programme, data collection is often the most time consuming and difficult element and requires considerable planning.
