CE Webinar: Maternal Sepsis: Epidemiology, Early Detection, and Equity Considerations
May 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Date: May 18, 2023
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 pm ET / 11:00 am – 12:00 pm PT
Sepsis in labor and postpartum is a leading cause of maternal morbidity and mortality. In this special Maternal Sepsis Week program, you’ll learn about the epidemiology of obstetric sepsis and how it affects different populations. Early detection and management of sepsis, awareness of inequities and recognizing the increased risk of adverse outcomes in some obstetrical patient populations is vital to improving outcomes.
The importance of equity considerations in sepsis care will also be explored, as well as how to recognize and address potential disparities in access to care, treatment, and outcomes for people in labor and delivery with sepsis.
