September 7, 2023 | 11:00AM - 12:00PM PT

In this enlightening session, speaker will delve into the complexities surrounding the timely detection of sepsis, emphasizing the importance of not overanalyzing its signs and symptoms. Sepsis, a global issue, often presents itself in a way that mimics other causes, leading to misdiagnosis or delayed intervention. By addressing this challenge head-on, we aim to equip healthcare professionals with the knowledge and strategies needed to navigate the diagnostic process effectively. Join us as we explore real-life case studies and practical approaches, ensuring that sepsis is not missed amidst the complexities of its presentation.

The Challenge of Sepsis: Avoiding Overthinking the Signs, Symptoms and Delaying Identification

Thursday, September 7, 2023: 11 a.m.- noon (PT)

Safe Table discussions are designed to empower providers to engage in robust, meaningful patient safety and quality improvement activities. These discussions are driven by attendee participation. Attendees may choose to present a case or simply participate in the discussion by sharing their thoughts, feedback, and suggestions. Attendees wishing to share a case should indicate this during registration and a member of the CHPSO team will reach out to you to assist you with case preparation. Sharing cases spontaneously during the meeting is also encouraged, time permitting. Attendees may present with or without slides. The cases may be brief, three to five minutes, or longer if the complexity of the issue warrants additional time. Cases generally involve a situation in which there are systematic concerns or those for which the organization may be looking for ways to address the matter or obtain advice.

At the conclusion of the safe table meeting, participants will be able to:

  • Describe information about best practices relative to patient safety
  • Discuss challenges in a frank, open discussion with other hospitals
  • Describe lessons learned from other organizations as it could relate to the work in the participant’s hospital
