Sepsis Alliance and bioMérieux offer new sepsis education for providers

Aug. 6, 2019

Sepsis Alliance and bioMérieux, a global provider of in vitro diagnostics, have announced their renewed collaboration to increase healthcare provider education on sepsis with the webinar series, Sepsis: Across the Continuum of Care.

Sepsis: Across the Continuum of Care provides education on sepsis and related topics for healthcare providers across the entire continuum of care, from critical care to home care staff. Future webinars will include: Artificial Intelligence in Sepsis Care, Sepsis and Respiratory Disease, Sepsis and Antimicrobial Stewardship, among others. bioMérieux has supported the series since it began in late 2017.

Sepsis is the body’s life-threatening response to an infection that affects 1.7 million people and takes 270,000 lives a year in the United States. The condition takes more lives annually than prostate cancer, breast cancer and opioid overdoses combined.

“bioMérieux’s commitment to Sepsis: Across the Continuum of Care has enabled us to reach tens of thousands of healthcare providers, and that reach is multiplied when you consider all the patients they care for,” said Thomas Heymann, President and Executive Director, Sepsis Alliance, in the statement.

Together, bioMerieux and Sepsis Alliance have collaborated for five years in an effort to inform the public about the dangers and risk factors of sepsis and to promote clinical best-practices for early detection, diagnosis and treatment of this devastating condition.

bioMérieux is also a 2019 Public Education Sponsor of the 8th Annual Sepsis Heroes gala, which will take place on September 12, 2019, in New York City, NY. This annual event, timed to coincide with Sepsis Awareness Month, honors Sepsis Heroes who have made a significant contribution to sepsis awareness and education among both the general public and healthcare professionals.
