Pediatric Learning Solutions provides online education designed to address the educational needs of clinicians in the management of sepsis in the pediatric patient. Using evidence-based practice, clinicians can improve patient outcomes by reducing variability in processes across the continuum of sepsis care.
Approximately 4,500 children die every year from sepsis in the United States. However, the actual number of associated deaths is likely to be higher as many patients with an underlying disease process, such as prematurity or congenital heart disease, also die from sepsis.
Our Sepsis courses, along with other CHA initiatives, are helping to change that.
