A Statewide Call to Action: Improving Outcomes for Patients with Sepsis

from By the FMDA

Last week, the EMLRC hosted FMDA's 4th Annual Quality Advocacy Coalition Meeting: The Sepsis Summit. In attendance were colleagues from AHCA; FCEP, FHA; FHCA; HSAG the QIO/QIN; FL Chapter of ASCP; and FADONA.

A virtual library of Sepsis-Related Resources ranging from published journal articles and reports, PowerPoint presentations, and sepsis tools was created. These resources are available on the "FMDA" mobile app and online at www.fmda.org. If you have tools or resources you would like to share, please email ian.cordes@fmda.org.

We were all very impressed with the expertise, knowledge, experience and passion at the summit. However, we really need to expand the reach of this initiative far and wide in our state. You are the experts with the boots on the ground and your innovative ideas will drive the need for a white paper on best practices in reducing hospital readmissions due to sepsis.

At this time, we invite you to join the new Sepsis Steering Committee and/or any of the smaller workgroups listed below. Most of these meetings will be conveniently scheduled video conference calls. Please sign up here no later than Thursday, June 20. Sepsis Steering Committee Work Groups:
  • Work Group 1: Best practices to identify, diagnose, and manage sepsis until you can no longer manage it in the skilled nursing facility (SNF).
  • Work Group 2: What technologies are available and how best to leverage them.
  • Work Group 3: Identify the most promising theories we may want to test with a pilot project.
  • Work Group 4: Simple and standardized guidelines are needed to make SNFs sepsis-ready.
  • Work Group 5: How to rule out sepsis.
  • Work Group 6: Campaign to Increase Sepsis Awareness.
We need your support in order to make a significant difference. Please email Executive Director Ian Cordes, MBA, NHA at ian.cordes@fmda.org with any questions. more
