This session was part of the Sepsis Alliance AMR Conference 2023.
Though the incidence of community-acquired sepsis, often referred to as sepsis present on admission to the hospital, is significantly higher than hospital-acquired sepsis, studies have found that hospital-acquired, or hospital onset sepsis, is associated with both higher mortality and higher resource utilization. During this session, the presenter will discuss the differences in community-acquired versus hospital-acquired sepsis, and the importance of AMR with specific respect to hospital acquired sepsis. Sepsis bundle adherence and performance in the hospital onset sepsis population will also be covered.
At the end of the session, the learner should be able to:
- Introduce the concept of hospital onset sepsis and provide a basic overview of epidemiology;
- Review differences in pathogens underlying community-acquired versus hospital-acquired sepsis and the importance of AMR with specific respect to hospital acquired sepsis;
- Explore sepsis bundle adherence and performance in this population.
