MedSun Educational Materials

On June 12th, FDA provided an educational webinar about Surgical Fire safety, entitled Practical Advice for Preventing Surgical Fires: Safety Strategies from the Front Lines. During this program we learned about three hospitals' experiences with surgical fires and the prevention strategies they initiated. The FDA Preventing Surgical Fires Initiative website was updated with webinar materials back in July. Now the Educational Materials page on the MedSun website also provides these materials for you. We encourage you to use and further distribute them to anyone who may be interested.
