Abstract
Date:  March 16, 2022
Time: 07:00am (PDT),  10:00am (EDT), 4:00pm (CEDT)
 
During this webinar, we will provide an overview of the current landscape of sepsis management and the impact of rapid culture-independent diagnostics on healthcare systems. We will present the best practices for implementing T2 sepsis panels based on first-hand experience at the University of Louisville Hospital. We will also review how implementing T2 sepsis panels can impact laboratory workflow and patient outcomes. Speakers will discuss “Choosing Wisely”, a framework encompassing diagnostic stewardship to drive practice changes that will improve the quality of care for patients suspected of sepsis, while also optimizing healthcare resources.
 
Learning Objectives
  • Compare culture-independent testing versus current diagnostic methods and the implications on healthcare outcomes, antimicrobial stewardship.
  • Review a successful experience of implementing T2 Biosystems' diagnostics in the hospital laboratory and the positive impact on operational and clinical outcomes.
  • Outline how utilizing the “Choosing Wisely” framework tool can better match diagnostics with specific patient needs and populations for more effective care. Examine the clinical indicators that predict a high value outcome by ordering T2 Biosystems Panels and how to implement changes to your practice.
 
 
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
