Sepsis and Triage:
Maximizing Safety of Incoming Patients  

Session Overview

Our audience continuously requests more on sepsis. Dr. Jeanne Huddleston, our lead speaker this month, will address this topic to complement our prior sepsis webinars. Her emphasis will be on the triage and safety of incoming patients and the safety of patients being transferred out to other centers. She has led the breakthrough mortality review work at the Mayo Clinic that identified both sepsis and triage as two very important Opportunities for Improvement.

Dr. Greg Botz and Chief Bill Adcox, both of MD Anderson Cancer Center, and Vicki King of the University of Texas Police at Houston, will provide an update on the Med Tac bystander care program that is focused on patient safety during emergencies threatening the lives of previously healthy children, youth, and adults in their workforce years.

A reactor panel of patient advocates and experts will react to the presentation.

We offer these online webinars at no cost to our participants.
