2018 Sepsis Conference - Mission Possible: Early Sepsis Detection → Patient Dialogue → Successful Discharge

Register Print

Dates: September 5, 2018

Location: Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel

Registration Deadline: August 29, 2018

This year’s conference will cover topics of current interest to hospitals working to decrease sepsis mortality and sepsis readmissions. Subject matter experts will address topics ranging from pediatric sepsis to patient expectations for life after surviving sepsis.

Program Overview

Pennsylvania hospitals and health systems have made great strides in reducing mortality rates for sepsis. Still, sepsis continues to claim the lives of thousands of Pennsylvanians each year.

HAP HIIN’s severe sepsis and septic shock project supports hospitals in their work to decrease sepsis mortality in Pennsylvania. The ExSEPSIS—Exiting in Excellent Care!—initiative teaches hospitals how to formulate a plan to prevent sepsis readmissions.

For more information about the HIIN’s sepsis initiatives or the conference, contact Maggie Miller, HAP’s HIIN sepsis project manager, or Sandy Abnett, readmissions project manager and co-lead for ExSEPSIS.
