CE Webinar: The Importance of Timely Source Control in Patients With Sepsis: Reviewing New Findings
January 20, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Date: January 20, 2023
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 pm ET / 11:00 am – 12:00 pm PT
Despite the 2021 Surviving Sepsis Campaign’s recommendation to “implement any required source control intervention as soon as medically and logistically practical” when treating patients with sepsis, there has, until recently, been little data available to suggest what impact time to source control may have on patient outcomes. However, a July 2022 study of 4,962 patients with sepsis undergoing source control interventions in a 14-hospital integrated healthcare system offers new insights about the association between the timing of source control and patient outcomes. During this webinar, learners will hear from the study’s lead author about her findings and the conclusions that may be drawn from them. Learners will also have the opportunity to discuss sources with the highest association of poor outcomes and review best practice sepsis protocol recommendations for early source control.
