    Biography
      Dr. Wolk serves as the Division Director for “Molecular and Microbial Diagnostics and Development” in the Department of Laboratory Medicine at Geisinger, an integrated healthcare delivery network serving ~ 3 million people in Central PA.                                                                            A Diplomate of the American Board of Medical Microbiology (ABMM), Dr. Wolk's professional practice extends to the national and international level. She serves on CLIAC, providing scientific and technical guidance to the US Dept. of Health and Human Services, and serves as a liaison to the CDC's Board of Scientific Counselors for the Office of Infectious Diseases. She is the Diagnostic Microbiology Lead for Project Santa Fe's Clinical Laboratory 2.0 initiatives and was recently elected as incoming chair of the Infectious Disease subdivision for the Association of Molecular Pathology. Dr. Wolk is the lead investigator for Geisinger's Center for Laboratory Innovations and Outcomes, and chair of the Diagnostic Medicine Institute's Clinical Research Council. Her translational research efforts focus on evaluation and evidence-based integration of new technology for infectious disease diagnostics, and she leads the ASM/Center for Disease Control's Laboratory Medicine Best Practice initiatives to characterize the rapid diagnosis of bacteremia, and is a Professor at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine. In 2012, she was awarded the 1885 Society's Distinguished Scholar's Award at the University of Arizona; in 2016 she received the American Society for Microbiology's BD Award for Clinical Research in Microbiology; in 2018, her career was highlighted in the ASM Press book entitled “Women in Microbiology.” Dr. Wolk's post-doctoral fellowship was in Medical and Public Health Microbiology at Mayo Clinic, her Ph.D. was awarded in Pathobiology at the University of Arizona, and she earned a Master's in Health Administration from Wilkes University, with a B.S. in Microbiology/ Medical Technology from Penn State University.

    Abstract

    DATE: September 13, 2017
    TIME: 10:00am PT, 1:00pm ET

     

    As part of BD’s commitment to increased awareness to the health and financial burden associated with Sepsis, BD is sponsoring an educational webinar in recognition of  World Sepsis Day. This global disease, impacting an estimated 31 Million people world wide with an estimated 5 million deaths annually, is preventable and treatable through increased awareness and education.

    This session will frame the importance of blood cultures as they relate to the Surviving Sepsis Campaign and to healthcare’s efforts to reduce mortality from sepsis. It will also provide tips for laboratorians who seek to better characterize and report their quality metrics and associated improvement in their metrics to provide evidence of the laboratory contribution to sepsis programs.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Introduce the concepts of core measures for sepsis and their impact on hospitals.
    • Review ways that Microbiology laboratories can support efforts to improve core measures and sepsis outcomes.
    • Give examples of blood culture metrics and how they can support their organization’s sepsis program.
    • Review simple statistics that support laboratory quality initiatives for blood culture processes.
