Sepsis Alliance launches The Sepsis Institute to prepare healthcare providers for excellence in sepsis care

Oct. 24, 2019

Sepsis Alliance, the nation’s first and leading sepsis organization, announced the launch of The Sepsis Institute (TSI), an online learning platform that provides healthcare professionals across the continuum of care with high-quality, evidence-based sepsis education and training to improve diagnosis and outcomes for the millions who are harmed by sepsis every year in the U.S.

Taking an estimated 270,000 lives a year in the U.S. alone, sepsis is the body’s life-threatening reaction to an infection. TSI offers healthcare providers high-value training modules, webinars and resources using an innovative and convenient micro-learning approach. With the micro-learning format, healthcare providers can complete training courses in short segments at their own pace. The content on TSI is created, reviewed and led by a collection of recognized subject matter experts.

“We are confident that with leading healthcare experts in sepsis at its helm, The Sepsis Institute will enhance the skills, strategies and performance of members of the healthcare community in diagnosing and treating sepsis, and ultimately saving lives,” said Karin Molander, MD, FACEP, Chair-Elect, Sepsis Alliance Board of Directors.

In addition to on-demand sepsis specific webinars, ranging from fluid resuscitation to caring for sepsis survivors, The Sepsis Institute premieres a brand new training module, Sepsis and Home Healthcare. This module, designed specifically for home healthcare professionals, covers sepsis risk factors, identification, screening methods (SIRS, qSOFA), the Home Care Association Adult Sepsis Screening tool, treatment and more. Sepsis and Home Healthcare is presented by Al Cardillo, LMSW, the President and CEO of the Home Care Association of NY State, and Amy Bowerman, RN, BSN, the Executive Director of MVSH – Senior Health Network.
