Course Details

Overview

At hospitals across the country, sepsis education is increasing, and more clinicians are using a systems approach for early sepsis identification and timely evidence-based interventions for patients with suspected or known sepsis, severe sepsis or septic shock. These sweeping changes stem largely from the work of the Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) and hospitals’ commitment to reduce unacceptably high sepsis-related deaths. A collaboration of expert clinicians from critical care professional organizations, SSC aims to reduce sepsis-related deaths worldwide through awareness building, clinician education, development of diagnostic and management guidelines, and performance improvement programs. This course presents an overview of sepsis, reviews recommendations from SSC’s updated guidelines for managing severe sepsis and septic shock, and describes one hospital’s approach to early detection and management in reducing sepsis-related deaths.
