    Sepsis is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. As many as 80% of these deaths may have been prevented with rapid diagnosis and treatment. Most sepsis cases originate in the community.

    During this course, you'll follow the patient journey from recognition and treatment to discharge and aftercare. You'll also discover free sepsis awareness and education resources—including a home health screening and intervention tool and how it was successfully implemented.

    After completing this course, you'll be able to:

    ·    List three (3) signs & symptoms that identify sepsis as a medical emergency.

    ·    Describe the rationale for early recognition, treatment, and post-acute recovery care in home health.

    ·    Explain the importance of coordination and communication across the continuum of care when sepsis is suspected.

    ·    Implement evidence-based resources to improve sepsis awareness and care.
