FREE Sepsis Training Modules for EMS

Sepsis is a life-threatening complication of an infectious process that without rapid diagnosis and treatment can quickly progress to tissue damage, organ failure and death. 270,000 Americans die each year from sepsis.1,2  Alarmingly, mortality increases 8 percent with each hour an individual does not receive treatment for sepsis.3

Because nearly 87% of sepsis cases begin in the community1, awareness of the signs and symptoms of sepsis is critical knowledge for Emergency Medical Services (EMS). EMS professionals are critical partners as they can help prevent sepsis infection or death by knowing the risk factors, identifying the symptoms and initiating life-saving treatment.

Computerized sepsis training modules have been developed to educate EMS providers across the region of the significance of early recognition and treatment of sepsis and that sepsis is a medical emergency.

  • ·        Module 1: Reducing Sepsis Harm and Death

In this module, participants will learn about the symptoms and conditions where sepsis should be suspected and why sepsis is considered an emergency event.

  • ·        Module 2: Sepsis Screening Tool – Early and Reliable Identification

Participants will learn the sepsis risk factors, analyze the components of sepsis screening tools and evaluate the need for a sepsis screening tool for their local EMS unit. A sepsis screening tool is provided.

                                                                                                                                           

  • ·        Module 3: Sepsis Alert! Support Prompt Escalation & Timely Interventions for At-risk Patients

This module focuses on utilizing the sepsis screening tool to alert receiving healthcare providers that sepsis is suspected and appropriate action can be taken. Understanding the roles and expectations of all members of the healthcare team and using a standardized communication hand-off tool are discussed.

  • ·        October 2018 - Module 4: Continuous Quality Improvement

Participants will learn the importance of quality improvement and basic quality improvement strategies to improve EMS processes and systems.
