CE Webinar: Empowering Sepsis Survivors: Developing Patient & Family Education and Discharge Plans
February 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Date: February 14, 2023
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 pm ET / 11:00 am – 12:00 pm PT
Sepsis survivors often face many physical, mental, and emotional challenges following their initial hospitalization. Up to 75% of sepsis survivors develop new functional disabilities and 34% develop severe cognitive impairment. These post-sepsis complications can lead to high rates of post-discharge mortality and readmissions.
During this presentation, participants will learn about the long-term outcomes and risks faced by sepsis survivors. Additionally, there will be information on strategies and resources for championing best practice, evidence-based discharge planning, and education protocols for sepsis survivors and their families. During a moderated roundtable following the presentation, sepsis survivors will share their experiences and what opportunities they see for post-sepsis transitions of care improvement.
