9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Location: Connecticut Hospital Association, 110 Barnes Road, Wallingford, CT 06492

There is no fee for this event.

Join us for a full day conference dedicated to the urgent need to improve sepsis care across the continuum of care in Connecticut.  The conference will open with Ciaran Staunton, who, along with his wife Orlaith, founded The Rory Staunton Foundation in 2012 after the tragic death of his 12-year-old son from sepsis.  The Rory Staunton Foundation has impacted sepsis care both nationally and internationally.  Hear the Staunton’s compelling story and message regarding the importance of raising public awareness of sepsis through education and awareness programs to promote faster diagnosis and effective treatment of sepsis.

Our opening keynote speaker, Mitchell Levy, MD, is one of the founding members and an executive leader of the Surviving Sepsis campaign, a global initiative to improve the care of patients with severe sepsis.

Dr. Levy is known internationally for his research and commitment to improving sepsis care.  He will share his expertise and the latest recommendations on the care of patients with sepsis. 

The day will also feature local and national speakers who will share their best practice recommendations for sepsis care across the continuum. 

The program is being presented as part of the Partnership for Patients HIIN educational series.
