There will be a booth display with giveaways and a poster contest on September 13 from 9am to 1pm at the Houston Methodist Hospital Crain Garden.

The symposium will be held on September 14th. This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the essential areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, Texas Nurses Association, and American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation, and American Association for Respiratory Care. Physicians, advanced acute care nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, respiratory therapists, administrators, and quality officers will be able to earn 4.0 CME/CNE/CRCE’s.

More than 1.5 million people get sepsis each year in the U.S. At least 250,000 Americans die from sepsis each year and about 1 in 3 patients who die in a hospital have sepsis. The mission of this event is to promote awareness of sepsis to the community and healthcare team with the goal of improving patient care.
