Septris Internet Enduring Material Sponsored By: Stanford University School of Medicine Presented by: Stanford Hospital and Clinics Department of Quality, Patient Safety and Effectiveness
To Obtain CME Credits:
Intended Audience Designed for hospital-based medical and surgical, intensive care and emergency department physicians and nurses.
Course Description Sepsis strikes approximately 750,000 people in the US and is responsible for more than 215,000 deaths. Mortality remains high at 25-50% at a cost of $17 billion each year . Septic states have become far too common; with unacceptable high mortality rates and lengthy hospitalizations, it is one of the most costly conditions to treat. This activity provides a practical approach to early sepsis identification and application of evidence-based management (best practice) and evidence-based guidelines. Interactive case scenarios will be used to put these principles into practice. Learning Objectives

Commercial Support Acknowledgement Stanford University School of Medicine has received and has used undesignated program funding from Pfizer, Inc. to facilitate the development of innovative CME activities designed to enhance physician competence and performance and to implement advanced technology. A portion of this funding supports this activity. California Assembly Bill 1195 – Cultural and Linguistic Competency California Assembly Bill 1195 requires continuing medical education activities with patient care components to include curriculum in the subjects of cultural and linguistic competency. It is the intent of the bill, which went into effect July 1, 2006, to encourage physicians and surgeons, CME providers in the State of California and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to meet the cultural and linguistic concerns of a diverse patient population through appropriate professional development. The planners and speakers of this CME activity have been encouraged to address cultural issues relevant to their topic area. The Stanford University School of Medicine Multicultural Health Portal also contains many useful cultural and linguistic competency tools including culture guides, language access information and pertinent state and federal laws. You are encouraged to visit the portal: http://lane.stanford.edu/portals/cultural.html Please note this is an educational tool and the clinical information found in this game is part of an enduring educational material. It should not take the place of practitioner decision-making in clinical circumstances. 1 Angus DC, Linde-Zwirble WT, Lidicker J, Clermont G, Carcillo J, Pinsky MR.
