The Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) and The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine have partnered to bring you Sepsis Without Walls: Ensuring All Patients Receive Optimal, Time-Sensitive Care, which will be held September 25, 2015, at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. The focus of this one-day interactive conference will be on strategies to identify, diagnose and manage patients who present with signs and symptoms of sepsis, irrespective of their care unit.
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. Thus, healthcare providers need 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.
