Topic

Sepsis survivors often face many physical, mental, and emotional challenges following their initial hospitalization. Up to 75% of sepsis survivors develop new functional disabilities and 34% develop severe cognitive impairment. These post-sepsis complications can lead to high rates of post-discharge mortality and readmissions. During this presentation, participants will learn about the long-term outcomes and risks faced by sepsis survivors. Additionally, there will be information on strategies and resources for championing best practice, evidence-based discharge planning, and education protocols for sepsis survivors and their families. During a moderated roundtable following the presentation, sepsis survivors will share their experiences and what opportunities they see for post-sepsis transitions of care improvement.
