Healthcare-Associated Infection Mini-Summit 2021
December 16, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST
Date: December 16, 2021
Time: 12PM – 3:30PM ET / 9AM – 12:30PM PT
According to the CDC, one in every 31 patients contracts at least one healthcare-associated infection (HAI) daily. And HAIs have increased dramatically during the COVID-19 pandemic—some, such as central line bloodstream infections (CLABSIs), increased as much as 47% in 2020.
Attention must be refocused on reducing these numbers.
Please join the Sepsis Alliance Institute for the second HAI Mini-Summit. The HAI Mini-Summit will offer a free, virtual 3.5-hour clinical program on a range of topics in the area of HAIs, including:
- Peripheral intravenous line-associated bloodstream infections;
- Non-ventilator hospital-acquired pneumonia;
- CAUTIs & CLABSIs;
- Antimicrobial stewardship & HAIs.
Attendees will hear expert presentations on current clinical knowledge and recommendations for infection prevention and treatment to improve clinical outcomes. This event is free for registrants and will offer 4.2 CE contact hours for nurses.
