Microbiology and Infectious Disease; An Introduction to… series

Session 3 of 4

The speakers will provide an overview on recognising, diagnosing and treating patients with sepsis. This session provides attendees with the essential skills required for the safe and effective management of sepsis and septic shock as well as other common co-morbidities that require tailored therapy.

This series is ideal for antimicrobial pharmacists starting out in this speciality, non-specialists and newly qualified pharmacists with an interest in antimicrobial stewardship.

Many of the concepts will focus on the management of infection in hospital setting but the principles and content are universal to all aspects of healthcare provision including community, clinic and non-acute settings.

The aim of this session is to introduce students to the diagnosing and managing patients with infection and signs of sepsis as well as other common co-morbidities.

After this webinar, attendees should be able to:

  • Define sepsis, how it presents and the pathophysiological changes expected in a patient with sepsis
  • Discuss the importance of antimicrobials in the management of patients with sepsis
  • Review how antimicrobial therapies require personalisation in patients with kidney injury, extremes of age and immunocompromised status
  • Describe how can we improve patient outcomes

Speakers:
Stephen Hughes, Consultant Antimicrobial Pharmacist, Chelsea and Westminster Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust
Marisa Lanzman, Antimicrobial Pharmacist, Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust
