This training will define sepsis, the risk factors related to infection, how to recognize the signs and symptoms of sepsis, and how vital signs can indicate there is a problem. What role the direct care staff play in reducing the risk for infections developing into sepsis, and recognizing the need to get help immediately if sepsis is suspected.

Attendees will receive a certificate of participation, educational handouts along with the training presentation.
