Title of Survey: Implementation of Staphylococcus Aureus Decolonization in Cardiac Surgery: A National Survey


We are conducting a survey on the rates of Staphylococcus aureus screening and decolonization practices across Canadian institutions that offer cardiac surgery. We also hope to understand any barriers and/or sustainability to screening and decolonizing institutions may have experienced.  


Your participation is voluntary and the survey results will be anonymous. It is anticipated that the survey will take less than ten minutes. Please find further details at the beginning of the survey. We would appreciate your participation.
