Join the Vermont Branch of the New England QIN-QIO, on July 10 or July 16 from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM, for a free educational program designed to help you understand the signs and symptoms of sepsis. This 2-hour "train the trainer" program for community providers will also help you identify clinical prompts that can facilitate earlier identification of sepsis. All attendees will receive a toolkit of resources and education materials on the early detection of sepsis to bring back to your facility.
Each year, over 1.7 million adults develop sepsis in the United States. One in three patients who die in a hospital have sepsis, and sepsis hospitalizations account for a higher proportion of unplanned 30-day readmissions than hospitalizations for heart attack, heart failure, COPD, and pneumonia. Despite these statistics, only 1% of Americans can identify symptoms of sepsis.
If you have any questions, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you at one of these trainings!
