Webinar – Hospital Acquired Sepsis: Early Recognition and Intervention
July 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Date: Thursday, July 30th
Time: 2-3PM EST / 11AM-12PM PST
Hospitalized patients, like those who have recently had surgery, those with chronic medical conditions that may put them at risk, and patients who are admitted with an infection that is not getting better or is getting worse, may be at risk of developing sepsis. In this webinar, learn how a community healthcare system of three hospitals developed a sepsis program that helped their staff become better able to recognize and start treatment for sepsis as early as possible. Strategies focused on continual education, feedback about sepsis bundle compliance, and involving nursing staff as integral members to prevent infection will be discussed. Early involvement of infectious disease specialists and antimicrobial stewardship can play a role in reduction of sepsis mortality.
