Sepsis & Trauma: What Frontline Providers Need to Know

Webinar/Online

Tuesday, December 7, 2021 at 2:00pm ET - 3:00pm ET

Info

Topic

Although trends in sepsis mortality have generally improved over the years, this is not the case in the trauma population. According to a 2012-2016 analysis of the trends, cost, and mortality from sepsis after trauma in the United States, published in Critical Care Medicine in 2020, the risk of death in this population remains high. In this session hosted by Sepsis Alliance, Dr. Afshar—one of the study's co-authors—will discuss his retrospective cohort study and explore what the findings mean for frontline clinicians needing to recognize and care for sepsis patients following trauma.

Speaker(s)

Majid Afshar, MD, MSCR (Assistant Professor, Division of Pulmonary & Critical Care Department of Medicine Department of Biostatistics and Medical Informatics School of Medicine and Public Health University of Wisconsin-Madison)
