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 remains complex.
Join Sepsis Alliance this Wednesday, August 18 for Transitions of Care After Sepsis Hospitalization, a live webinar focused on the care needs of sepsis survivors in the transition out of acute care settings.
Dr. Stephanie 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, including the persistent downstream effects of illness that sepsis survivors frequently face. Participants will learn about evidence-based approaches to meet these needs.
Nurses, physicians, pharmacists, emergency responders, healthcare management teams, and other healthcare staff may benefit.
- Demonstrate awareness of the challenges 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
