Patients with compromised immune systems are at an increased risk of developing sepsis, which is a potentially life-threatening condition. The education of patients and families on the recognition of sepsis is vital to the improvement of outcomes. In 2017, the Pediatric Hematology-Oncology clinic at UNC Children’s Hospital, in conjunction with their Family Advisory Board, took an ambitious step in developing education for this patient population. Join Dr. Hillary Spangler, a pediatric sepsis survivor, as she takes us on her journey of sepsis survival and how her team assembled their first family sepsis initiative, educating over 500 families on the signs and symptoms of sepsis.
