    • Overview

      The content of this activity is designed for pharmacists, nurses, and pharmacy technicians working in a hospital setting.

      The exact societal burden from septic shock in difficult to quantify: millions of individuals in both industrialized and developing nations experience these syndromes each year, the best medical centers in the world have only achieved a 22% mortality rate for, and caregivers as well as patients endure a long-lasting impact from caring from loved ones who have survived sepsis. With an update to the Surviving Sepsis Campaign being published in January 2017, practitioners will need an update on these guidelines.
