Aggressive, early sepsis identification and treatment initiatives have decreased in-hospital mortality for patients with sepsis over the last two decades. However, management of sepsis survivors during the transition out of the hospital is complex, as patients frequently face persistent downstream effects of their illness. Dr. Taylor, a physician scientist with NIH-funding to study optimal strategies for post-sepsis care, will address what is known about the post-acute care needs of sepsis survivors and discuss evidence-based approaches to meet these needs.
Who should attend?
Nurses, physicians, pharmacists, emergency responders, healthcare management teams, and other healthcare staff.
At the end of the webinar, the attendee should be able to:
- Demonstrate awareness of the challenged faced by sepsis survivors in the transition out of acute care settings;
- Define best practices to address the post-acute care needs of sepsis survivors;
- Identify key implementation factors relevant to the success of sepsis transition support across different settings.
