Frontline nurses are crucial in the process of rapid identification and interventions for the pediatric sepsis patient. As momentum in the battle against sepsis continues to strengthen, there is a rising opportunity for nurses to lead initiatives in their organizations.
Presented in partnership with Sepsis Alliance, join the 2018 winners of the Erin's Campaign for Kids Nursing Award, and Children's Hospital Association, to learn their strategies for nursing education and standardizing the care of patients with suspected sepsis. As advancing sepsis detection and treatment are essential to improving outcomes, discover how Mary Kate Abbadessa and Andrea Cowan successfully drove change in sepsis care at their respective institutions and in the community.
Sepsis advocate, Dr. Hillary Spangler, will also share her journey of pediatric sepsis survival and how it has inspired her passion for sepsis initiatives.
