Live Webinar: The Real Problem with Sepsis Management

July 20, 2021

Webinar Description: 

Sponsored by Luminare. 

Learn how clinical observations and workflow at bedside along with EHR data produces better patient outcomes through three real-life case studies. This webinar will cover how using robotic process automation can drive clinical workflow to produce earlier sepsis identification, universal sepsis screening, and improved awareness at bedside of patient acuity, while equipping the Sepsis Coordinator to make a case for sepsis process improvement.

Target Audience

Nurses, physicians, pharmacists, emergency responders, healthcare management teams, and other healthcare staff may benefit.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the presentation, attendees should be able to:

  • Explain Swiss Cheese and its application to sepsis: why bedside nursing workflow is key to better sepsis outcomes;
  • Understand the surprising truth of in-hospital sepsis: the different outcomes between in-hospital and out-of-hospital sepsis;
  • Be equipped to build a business case for improving sepsis outcomes: justify programs for improving sepsis care.
