Sepsis Collaborative: Reducing Harm Associated with Sepsis 2020
Early detection of sepsis, with the timely administration of appropriate fluids and antibiotics, appear to be the single most important factors in reducing morbidity and mortality from sepsis. In high-income countries, this means organization of systems responsible for patient care, strong leadership, and an effective optimization of resources for prevention
September is Sepsis month. In honor of this, these webinars address the topics of 1) nursing’s role in identifying and escalating the rescue of the sepsis patient, 2) the experience of the patient and family with sepsis sequelae, and 3) the Thrive Program which deals with the post-acute / post-inpatient care of the sepsis survivor.
This course is intended for Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Infectious Disease, Hospitalist, Pulmonology, Intensivist, Emergency Medicine, PA, APN, RN, Pharmacy, Laboratory, Risk Mgmt, QI & Other Interested Professionals
Upon completion of the activity the participant should be able to describe key elements of treatment protocols for patients with sepsis, sequelae that complicate the patient’s recovery and develop treatment protocols to address the acute and recovery phases of sepsis.
