    Sepsis can arise from any underlying infection, affecting anyone at any time. The symptoms can be easily missed, allowing the disease process to move quickly through the body, resulting in disability, loss of limbs or death.

    Hospitals must move quickly and effectively to address this complex condition. This webinar illustrates the risks of  misdiagnosis, the challenges of treatment, and provides practical solutions that providers can undertake to increase early recognition, response and recovery.

    Discover the key elements of successful sepsis performance improvement initiatives that improve patient outcomes, lower mortality and reduce health care cost.

    You Will Learn:

    1. The implications of sepsis to the health care industry
    2.  The key challenges to sepsis identification and management
    3. About a case study illustrating the difference between early intervention and later intervention
    4.  Recommended next Action Steps for a 'SuspectSepsis' initiative
