Sponsored Webinar: Improving Sepsis Diagnosis and Management with Precision Medicine Tools
Sponsored by Immunexpress
In this sponsored webinar, Kenneth Remy, MD, MHSc, MSCI, FCCM, will speak to the current challenges associated with diagnosing sepsis and describe new approaches with technologies that harness the host’s immune response to infection. He will illustrate how these new technologies can provide a more prompt and precise assessment of the suspected sepsis patient and guide the physician in care management decisions. He will also review how a Quality Improvement (QI) initiative can provide a mechanism to evaluate and introduce these new technologies to a hospital sepsis program.
Nurses, advanced practice providers, physicians, emergency responders, pharmacists, medical technologists, respiratory therapists, physical/occupational therapists, infection prevention specialists, data/quality specialists, and more.
Sepsis Alliance gratefully acknowledges the support provided for this webinar by Immunexpress.
