Apex Innovations Launches Cutting-Edge Sepsis Educational Program
Online competency series provides essential information for early recognition and management of sepsis
Lafayette, LA, October 1, 2017
, the company that delivers high-quality, evidence-based continuing education programs for healthcare professionals, today announced the launch of Sepsis: A Systemic ResponseTM
, a web-based competency series. This comprehensive program uses 3-D animations and exceptional, interactive graphics to deliver exciting, relevant sepsis education to nurses, physicians, and other healthcare professionals. The overarching goal of this program is to help healthcare organizations promote optimal patient outcomes by ensuring that their clinicians are sepsis-knowledgeable and sepsis-competent.
Sepsis: A Systemic Response offers four levels of content, including related anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. Content complexity ranges from basic for all hospital staff to ensure they are sepsis-knowledgeable to more in-depth content for clinicians at all levels who are responsible for the safe, competent care for patients at risk for and diagnosed with sepsis or septic shock.
"Apex Innovations is proud to offer this exceptional web-based education to healthcare professionals," said Cindy Tryniszewski, MSN, RN, FAEN, Senior Vice President, Product Development.
"Healthcare organizations are keenly aware of the overall impact and costs associated with sepsis," Tryniszewski said. "Delayed recognition and treatment has led to sepsis being one of the most expensive in-patient costs in U.S. hospitals, costing billions of dollars each year. To complicate matters further, the survival rate for patients with sepsis drops 3% to 4% for every hour without appropriate treatment."
According to Marianne Bourgeois, BSN, RN, Founder and President of Apex Innovations, "With Sepsis: A Systemic Response, healthcare organizations can integrate this education into their overall sepsis program to help ensure that clinicians recognize the early signs and symptoms of sepsis and intervene swiftly and competently."
This new product adds to Apex Innovations' growing line of online continuing education programs, including essential courses for healthcare organizations that are accredited as chest pain and stroke centers or are seeking sepsis certification.
