Multisystem-Inflammatory Syndrome in Children or Sepsis? Evaluating an Emerging Syndrome


Registration has reached capacity for this event and is now closed.

The event recording and slides will be available on the website following the live event.


Multisystem-Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) is an emerging syndrome with potentially severe manifestations. Presentation can mimic sepsis, posing a challenge for clinicians. Speakers have taken a deep dive into emerging MIS-C literature and published this work in Critical Care Nurse and the American Journal of Nursing. Join us to review latest guidance on recognition, diagnostics, and treatment of MIS-C vs. sepsis.


  • Describe the differences in pathophysiology of MIS-C vs. sepsis
  • Identify overlapping and distinguishing signs and symptoms of MIS-C and sepsis
  • Analyze current evidence to support management strategies for MIS-C
