HQIC LAN – Sepsis Care | August 25, 2022
In the U.S., one person dies every two minutes from sepsis. Many organizations have initiated programs around caring for the septic patient that falls short of desired outcomes. The complexity of the disease, variability in presentation of the patient, and the skill and knowledge level of the provider makes this core measure distinctly different and potentially a greater challenge to implement. This webinar will focus on taking the learner through a four-tiered strategy to identify patients early in the disease and manage them based on the latest evidence. Health equity and disparities in sepsis care will also be discussed, as well as key implementation strategies for hard wiring the clinical and process behaviors. Barriers with reliable actions to reduce their impact will be described and participants will have the opportunity to identify gaps between the evidence and their hospitals program.
- Summarize the four-tier process for effective sepsis program development
- Examine evidence for the sepsis bundles and share proven strategies to resolve barriers in implementation and measurement
- Identify gaps between the evidence and your hospital’s sepsis program
