Summary from 6/22 Pacing Event: “Sepsis: Updated Guidelines and Exploring Its Role in Readmissions”

As we continue our short series of Pacing Events around readmissions, this Pacing Event focused on the diagnosis of sepsis as a contributor to readmissions. The event discussed the updated sepsis guidelines, with a focus on the elements that align with the work of the Partnership. In addition, the event featured discussions around the emerging research on readmissions linked to sepsis, as well as considerations to be addressed when discharging patients with a sepsis diagnosis.

Specifically, the session will included presentations and perspectives from:

  • Christa Schorr, RN, MSN, FCCM, member of the Surviving Sepsis Campaign’s Steering Committee and Associate Professor of Medicine Cooper Medical School at Rowan University and Clinical Nurse Scientist, at Cooper University Hospital in New Jersey (NJ HIIN), who discussed the Campaign’s updated sepsis guidelines and what HIINs and hospitals need to know about using these in their work; and
  • Florian Mayr, MD, MPH, faculty member in the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Critical Care Medicine (HAP HIIN) and the VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System, who discussed his team’s research on sepsis as a cause of readmissions, including the findings, ideas about what these mean for hospitals, and next steps.
