About the Series

Anyone can get an infection, and almost any infection can lead to sepsis. In a typical year, 1 in 3 people who dies in a hospital had sepsis during that hospitalization. We can all, no matter our role, take action to get ahead of sepsis. Join AMA, CDC, and partners for a webinar series introducing the new Hospital Sepsis Program Core Elements.

This webinar series is designed for U.S. hospital administrators, clinicians, leadership, and multidisciplinary teams, including nurses, physicians, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, phlebotomists, and others who work in a health care facility.

During each one-hour webinar, CDC subject matter experts will provide an overview of the Hospital Sepsis Program Core Elements followed by an in-depth focus on a specific Sepsis Core Element(s). CDC partners will share real-life examples, strategies, and best practices about how they have successfully incorporated the Sepsis Core Element(s) at their organization.

All webinars are recorded to allow participants the option to catch up on sessions they missed or to revisit content. As each webinar topic is independent, participants can attend later webinars even if they’ve missed previous ones.

Developed in collaboration with the American Medical Association and CDC’s Project Firstline, the educational webinar series is free and health care professionals can earn Continuing Education (CE).*

Collaborators: CDC’s Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion (DHQP), Project Firstline, and the American Medical Association.

*Continuing Education (CE) for this series is pending.
