    Sepsis Management Across the Care Continuum

    Hosted by Qualis Health's Communities for Safer Transitions of Care team.



    Sepsis is a major contributing factor to hospital readmissions in Idaho and Washington.

    Join us to learn about sepsis, its human and financial impacts in different healthcare settings, and approaches to early identification in the outpatient and post-discharge settings.

    Speakers from local healthcare organizations will also discuss the sepsis-related strategies that they have put in place.

    Intended Audience
    Nurses, physicians, and others with interest in sepsis across care settings
