Fighting Sepsis: Nurses Leading the Charge

This educational activity has been a Joint Collaboration between Children’s Hospital Association and Sepsis Alliance.

From community to bedside to process improvement, nurses play an essential role in efforts to improve survival and quality of life for pediatric sepsis patients. Nursing leaders Cheryle Aizley and Clare Komugisha have risen to the challenge as the 2020 winners of the Erin’s Campaign for Kids Nursing Award. The Sepsis Webinar Series returns in 2021 with this special presentation hosted by the Children’s Hospital Association in partnership with the Sepsis Alliance, the leading nonprofit sepsis patient advocacy organization in North America.  This event highlights the work of these exemplary nurses and, who through their dedication to improving sepsis care, have transformed teams and brought about measurable change. Discover how they have leveraged collaborative partnerships including those with caregivers, data-driven efforts, and team-based education strategies to improve recognition, timely care, and post-discharge safety of pediatric sepsis patients across their respective institutions as well as across varied communities at large.

1.0 hour of continuing education credit will be awarded for attending this live event.
