Activity Summary

Required reading for all learners: Implicit Bias impacts patient outcomes

New sepsis research has the potential to change practice for the APRN and it is important to know when and how to implement new practice changes. The first step is to understand the latest updates to the Surviving Sepsis guidelines, bundles, definitions and CMS (SEP-1) measures. The latest hot topic sepsis research from 2022 to 2023 is analyzed in this session and reconciled to recommendations in the 2021 guidelines allowing the learner to come away with practical take-home points.


  • Review new research pertinent to sepsis care in the previous 18 months.
  • List management strategies to reflect practice changes.
  • Apply knowledge of how sepsis measures, definitions, sepsis guidelines and bundles and new research fits into your practice.
