Healthcare-Associated Infection Mini-Summit

Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) present a serious concern for healthcare professionals: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that one in every 31 hospital patients has at least one HAI each day. Healthcare-associated infections, like any infection, can cause sepsis. Healthcare-associated infection prevention measures are, therefore, also sepsis prevention measures.

Proactive infection prevention measures and surveillance of traditional HAIs were exceedingly difficult during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, and as a result, HAIs rose as much as 47% in 2020. As we begin to move into a new phase of the pandemic, it is necessary that healthcare professionals refocus their attentions on key performance and outcome improvement opportunities across departments and specialties as they relate to HAIs.

To support this initiative, the ​Sepsis Alliance Institute is holding their Healthcare-Associated Infection Mini-Summit on December 15, 2022 from 11:00am – 2:30pm CST.

This virtual 3.5-hour clinical program on several critical HAI-related topics and will provide attendees with updated clinical knowledge and recommendations for timely infection prevention and treatment.

Agenda topics include:

  • Health Equity Considerations in Infection Prevention, HAIs, and Sepsis
  • The Gut Microbiota in HAIs: C. difficile and Beyond
  • Dialysis and Kidney Transplant Safety to Prevent HAIs
  • Urinary Catheter & Culture Stewardship in Infection and Sepsis Prevention
  • Best Practice Anesthesia Infection Prevention Measures to Avoid HAIs
  • Improving Patient-Provider Communication to Prevent HAIs in Hospitalized Patients

This event is free for registrants and will offer 4.2 contact hours for nurses, register here.
