About This Event

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 Erin’s Campaign for Kids Nursing Award.

This event highlights the work of these exemplary nurses, who through their dedication to improving sepsis care, have transformed teams and brought about measurable change.

Discover how they 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.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe nurse-led, team-based approaches to rapid sepsis recognition and response.
  • Examine the continuation of sepsis interventions from admission through discharge.
  • Discuss opportunities for collaboration to improve pediatric sepsis care.

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