Creating a methodology to improve the timely recognition and treatment of pediatric sepsis does not fall short of complexities. Identifying key pediatric clinical criteria, used to develop effective electronic alerts and defining technical challenges and validation strategies required for optimal alert performance, are just the beginning. Nurses play an integral role in the process of rapid identification and interventions for the pediatric sepsis patient.
Presented in partnership with Sepsis Alliance, Beth Wathen and Wendi Redfern, critical care nursing leaders and 2017 winners of the Sepsis Alliance Erin K. Flatley Pediatric Sepsis Award, will join Children’s Hospital Association in discussing the challenges and potentials for that role. In addition, they will share their strategies to improve pediatric sepsis recognition and treatment at their respective institutions.
Sepsis Alliance founder, Dr. Carl Flatley will also share his story of losing his daughter, Erin, to sepsis and his determination to save lives in her memory.
