Reduced registration rates end September 2, 2015, for the Sepsis Without Walls conference, which will be held September 25, 2015, at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. The Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) is partnering with Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine to offer this one-day interactive conference, which will focus on strategies to identify, diagnose and treat patients who present with signs and symptoms of sepsis, irrespective of the care unit in which they are located.
Early detection of sepsis, with the timely administration of appropriate antibiotics, appears to be the single most important factor in reducing morbidity and mortality from sepsis. Therefore, healthcare providers need to have a high index of suspicion for the presence of sepsis and must begin appropriate antimicrobials quickly. Join the multiprofessional panel of leading experts who will focus on problem solving through case studies in developing effective strategies in specific patient populations.
- Identify cutting-edge diagnostic algorithms for pathogen identification in sepsis
- Analyze and implement sepsis pathways for patients who are not yet located in the intensive care unit
- Compare and contrast the efficacy of current infection control practices
- Summarize effective antibiotic recommendations for common nosocomial infections
