Closing the Gap: Sepsis Care in Underserved Communities
June 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Date: June 10, 2021
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 PM EDT / 11:00 am – 12:00 PM PDT
Socioeconomic status (SES) is a complex variable derived primarily from an individual’s education, income, and occupation and is inversely related to health outcomes. This presentation will review the data on sepsis incidence, epidemiology, care, and outcomes related to SES and race. Known barriers to healthcare access in infectious diseases affecting low SES individuals, such as limited English proficiency, transportation, lack of insurance, and education, will be reviewed and implications for recognizing and minimizing these disparities in clinical practice will be addressed. In addition, how SES may affect outcomes of S. aureus bloodstream infections will be discussed.
