Surgical Skin Prep Decision Tool - Take the survey now!

We're delighted to have been finalists for the 'Replicating Digital Best Practice Award' HSJ Award.

Working alongside BD and NHS England, AfPP developed the Surgical Skin Prep Decision Tool. The tool is designed to guide practitioners in selecting the most appropriate skin preparation solution for respective surgical procedures.

Lindsay Keeley, AfPP Patient Safety & Quality Lead says, “This reliable, effective evidence-based tool identifies and considers all options chosen by the clinician, allowing analyses of the possible consequences of the decision-making, thus reducing harm.”

You can find out more regarding the tool in our November IPP, which you can access here.

You can access the tool and poster in the linked documents below. 


We want your feedback! This survey closes on Saturday September 30th 2023.

We would like to know more about your experience of using the surgical skin prep decision tool. Your feedback will help us to understand if the tool is easy to use and whether it facilitates clinical decision-making in practice. We also welcome your comments on any area of the tool that could be improved.
