Sponsored Webinar: Coordinating Sepsis Care Across Your Hospital; Best Practices and Tools to Improve Sepsis Performance and Patient Care

Webinar Description: 

Sponsored by Wolters Kluwer

Hospital teams’ attempts to affect improvement in sepsis care continue to fall short in improving patient outcomes and performance. Today sepsis is still the leading cause of non-cardiac death in ICUs and the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in most general hospitals. Discover best practices for improving the adoption of sepsis protocols and how to leverage key data elements to guide continuous improvement of your sepsis programs. We will explore how AI-powered surveillance empowers proactive management of patients at the bedside and enables sepsis coordinators to assist with real-time interventions to improve patient outcomes.

This course was originally recorded on 3/4/21 as part of the Sepsis Alliance Clinical Community Sponsor Innovation Day.

Target Audience

Nurses, physician assistants, physicians, emergency responders, physical therapists, patient care assistants, and other healthcare staff

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understand key steps to operationalize sepsis care across your facility.
  • Recognize the value of leveraging technology to centrally monitor sepsis care across your facility centrally.
  • Utilize key metrics to guide sepsis performance, including alert response and CMS SEP-1 bundle compliance.
