What you need to know

Thursday 16 June 2022, 15:30-17:00 CEST ~ Clinical presentation of sepsis, early signs & patients at risk

This first session is intended to set the stage for the series. It will showcase early signs of sepsis and patients at risk with a question to answer: how can we detect sepsis earlier from both the physician and nurse’s perspective? How can diagnostics help identify patients who may develop sepsis?

Thursday 23 June 2022, 15-30-17:00 CEST ~ Sepsis: early diagnosis & management

The second live interactive session will tackle the early diagnosis and management of sepsis patients according to the latest surviving sepsis guidelines and the role diagnostic plays in this early phase.

Tuesday 28 June 2022, 15-30-17:00 CEST ~ Sepsis complications

This session will cover the most common complications of sepsis: AKI, ARDS… and how diagnostic tests can support the diagnostic and the follow up of these complications.

Tuesday 07 July 2022, 15-30-17:00 CEST ~ Sepsis and Antimicrobial Resistance

Sepsis will be examined in direct relation to antimicrobial resistance. How can we offer septic patients the best possible care and, at the same time, tackle antimicrobial resistance by evaluating the role of diagnostic tests in antimicrobial stewardship (AMS)?

Tuesday 12 July 2022, 15-30-17:00 CEST ~ Post-Sepsis Syndrome (PSS) & life after sepsis: the patient voice

Life after sepsis isn’t often in the spotlight. In this last session, we aim to present the PSS through the patient’s voice.
