According to the CDC, each year at least 1.7 million adults in the US get sepsis and over 250,000 die from it. It is also a leading cause for hospital readmissions. Because about 80% of sepsis cases originate outside of the hospital, increased awareness and early identification and treatment are key to improving sepsis outcomes and saving lives.  

Join us from 10am to 12pm on Tuesday, May 14th for a train-the-trainer session about sepsis, which will provide key information about sepsis and available tools/resources.

Participants will be equipped to conduct trainings for their agency/facility’s clinical and nonclinical staff and all relevant materials will be available.

Upon completion of the session, participants will have increased knowledge to:

• Realize the severity and high prevalence of sepsis
• Know who is at highest risk for sepsis
• Identify the early signs and symptoms of sepsis
• Understand the development and progression of sepsis
• Understand post-sepsis syndrome
• Implement preventive measures for infection and sepsis

This program is provided by Healthcentric Advisors, the New England Quality Innovation Network Quality Improvement Organization, in partnership with the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts. 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?:

Post-Acute Care and Community Providers interested in learning about opportunities to improve the quality of care for patients with or at risk for sepsis.

CONTINUING EDUCATION:
This continuing nursing education activity was approved by the Northeast Multistate Division, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation for 2 CEUs.
