Sepsis, rashes, and superbugs are topics of concern for all people. Informed nurses are the to key to ensuring the best patient outcomes. This conference will explore:
- Sepsis - how and why early detection is essential
- Identifying infectious rashes in adults and children
- Antibiotic resistance – the available alternatives
- Inflammation and infection – what the evidence tells us
- The bugs of the future and much, much more…
Need for Program
Sepsis is associated with morbidity and mortality. Every nurse should be familiar with the decline associated with this condition. The rapidly changing characteristics of the infective organisms underlying sepsis, combined with antibiotic resistance, further compound the risks faced by vulnerable people. Rashes may be associated with an infectious pathogen and sepsis, but this is not always the case. The ability to identify symptoms and those at risk, as well as to quickly assess and manage sepsis, are essential skills that all nurses must have to avert unnecessary patient harm.
Purpose of Program
The purpose of this nurses’ conference is to provide current evidenced knowledge about sepsis and rashes, including prevention, identification, and management of people with these conditions.
