CE Webinar: Sepsis Risks and Clinical Considerations in Pediatric Patients with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
April 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Date: April 20, 2023
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 pm ET / 11:00 am – 12:00 pm PT
Having an intellectual disability puts many children at higher risk of sepsis. It is necessary to educate healthcare professionals about this heightened risk and the care needs of these children, to help prevent unnecessary complications and deaths from sepsis in this vulnerable population. During this webinar, attendees will learn how to recognize patients with intellectual and developmental disabilities who are at increased risk of sepsis, understand problems inherent in evaluating patients who cannot give a complete history, and develop a framework for evaluating patients with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
