Sepsis:  Nursing and Front-Line Staff Empowerment for Early Identification and Prompt Treatment

Join us for a regional webinar hosted by our neighbors in Missouri.  The featured topic is sepsis prevention.  In this interactive virtual session, one Missouri hospital will be sharing information about their nurse initiative to implement sepsis care kits, and another hospital will discuss their new sepsis order sets and qSOFA screening.  They also will share their successes with sepsis awareness education for Emergency Department staff.  In addition, Maryann Whitney, Cynosure Health, will discuss nurse empowerment to increase sepsis awareness and improve outcomes.

The South Central HIINergy Partners is a group of six geographically proximal state hospital associations (Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas).  We have partnered together to create synergy and an enriched virtual learning experience for our participating HRET HIIN hospitals.  We are working together with shared aims in achieving a 20% reduction in all-cause harms and a 12% reduction in all-cause readmissions.
