Sepsis is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. Most sepsis cases originate in the community, and as many as 80% of deaths may have been prevented with rapid diagnosis and treatment. During this webinar, the patient journey throughout the continuum of care from recognition and treatment to discharge and aftercare—as well as a home health success story—will be discussed.

After attending, you’ll be able to:

  • List three (3) signs & symptoms that identify sepsis as a medical emergency.
  • Describe the rationale for early recognition, treatment, and post-acute recovery care in home health.
  • Explain the importance of coordination and communication across the continuum of care when sepsis is suspected.
  • Implement evidence-based resources to improve sepsis awareness and care.
