Pacific Northwest Sepsis Conference

​​​​​​​​​ Northwest Sepsis Conference

​June 17–18, 2019

Sepsis through the continuum of care.

Who should attend?

The Pacific Northwest Sepsis Conference is a two-day conference with a 1 or 2-day attendance option that will explore sepsis through the continuum of care. Speakers include local, national, and international sepsis experts. We will explore sepsis in different populations including adults, children, immunosuppressed patients, infants, the elderly, and others. We will examine the updated international guidelines of care and science behind these evidence-based recommendations and will also address the current CMS guidelines and how they are applied in sepsis care. Additional sessions include exploring novel therapies in sepsis, physical exam in sepsis care, and teamwork and systems approaches to improving sepsis care. Breakout sessions will use expert panels to offer an in-depth look at data, quality, and performance improvement in sepsis, cutting-edge clinical topics in sepsis care, and pediatric sepsis. Additional sessions featuring multidisciplinary care providers include challenging case studies of sepsis and great debates in sepsis care. Our audience will learn to be more effective team members and sepsis champions in their hospitals.

If you prefer to stay in downtown Seattle there are many options and most downtown hotels will be a 15–20-minute cab or ride service to the venue. There is also a Link Light Rail Station at University Street and Westlake that will take you to Husky Stadium in about 15 minutes for $2.50. The venue is a 10-minute walk from the Husky Stadium Station.
