The keynote speaker this year for the Department of Medicine’s Annual Day (June 18, 2018) is Dr Sanjay Saint from the University of Michigan. His particular interest lies in the intersection between patient safety and infection control. For instance, he has led numerous studies and projects related to catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI), including a major publication in NEJM study a couple of years ago: Saint S, et al A Program to Prevent Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infection in Acute Care. N Engl J Med. 2016 (attached)
