Webinar on Sepsis

Date: Tuesday, November 14, 2017
Time: 11:00 am - 12:30 pm (Washington DC Time)
Location: "Room C" PAHO Headquarters, Washington DC

The Pan American Health Organization is pleased to invite you to the webinar “Appropriate Use of Antibiotics in Sepsis: Timely Action that Saves Lives” organized in the framework of the 2017 World Antibiotic Awareness Week.  Being the most serious form of infection, sepsis represents a vital indication of the responsible use of effective antimicrobials for human health and in the absence of appropriate and timely clinical management it would be almost universally fatal.   

It aims at increasing awareness and highlighting the importance on rapid administration of appropriate antibiotics in order to reduce deaths from sepsis in the Americas. Experts and a sepsis survivor will be presenting on the vital experience of surviving this condition as well as on the challenges for managing sepsis in Latin America and the Caribbean. Presenters will highlight on access and timely use of appropriate antibiotics, including resistance patterns.
