Pearls & Pitfalls in Recognition
& Treatment of Pediatric Sepsis

A Free Webinar in Partnership
with the Children’s Hospital Association

Tuesday, September 18th at 1 PM EST/ 10 AM PST

Presented in partnership with Children’s Hospital Association, join us to hear three perspectives on the clinical presentation, assessment and treatment of pediatric sepsis. The ability to recognize variances in the clinical presentation of sepsis between children and adults is critical to improving outcomes. Dr. Scott Weiss, from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, will lead the audience in reviewing these variances and identifying differences in sepsis pathophysiology and outcomes between the two populations.

He will be joined by Dr. Leslie Dervan and Elaine Beardsley, MN ACCNS-P CPEN, from Seattle Children’s Hospital.
