Topic

Hospitalized patients may be at risk to develop sepsis, like those who have recently had surgery, those with chronic conditions that may put them at risk, and patients who are admitted with an infection. In this webinar, learn how a community healthcare system of 3 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 as integral members to prevent infection. Early involvement of infectious diseases and antimicrobial stewardship can play a role in reduction of sepsis mortality.
