Webinar: World Sepsis Day Webinar – Optimizing Patient Outcomes and Laboratory Efficiencies

The impact of sepsis on our global healthcare community is immeasurable.

BD, through education and leadership in sepsis diagnostics, continues to partner with the global healthcare community, to optimize patient outcome and laboratory efficiencies in areas such as:

  • reduction in health care costs
  • supporting improved medical outcomes
  • enhancing hospital and laboratory economic value
  • Offering innovative sepsis diagnostic platforms that include patented resin media which allows for rapid time to detection and enhanced organism recovery, key to the early diagnosis of septic episodes.

Join our panel to review:

  • Strategies to improve sepsis and blood culture diagnostics in the light of the new sepsis definitions
  • Near patient blood culture – improving time to incubation and emergency room workflow
  • Patient centered microbiology: an evidence based perspective on blood culture infrastructure

In partnership with the Global Sepsis Alliance Group, BD recognizes the global impact of Sepsis on our communities, and are excited to be a major sponsor of the First World Sepsis Congress conference on Sept 8-9, 2016.
