MHA Keystone Center Hosts Sepsis Awareness Twitter Chat
Posted on September 05, 2019
September is Sepsis Awareness Month. The annual observance was created in 2011 by Sepsis Alliance and aims to raise awareness to correctly identify and treat sepsis. Sepsis is a rapid response to infection that can lead to serious complications, and is currently the leading cause of death in U.S. hospitals.
The MHA Keystone Center will host a Sepsis Awareness Month Twitter chat on Thursday, Sept. 19 from noon to 1 p.m.
As part of the event, the MHA Keystone Center has partnered with the Illinois Health & Hospital Association, Wisconsin Hospital Association, MPRO, Vlasic & Roth LLC and member hospitals to bring attention to sepsis work being done in Michigan by the MHA Keystone Center, along with partner organizations and within the Great Lakes Partners for Patients Hospital Improvement Innovation Network.
During the one-hour chat, the MHA Keystone Center will moderate and lead the conversation, asking questions from @MHAKeystoneCtr. MHA-member hospitals are encouraged to share their improvement activities and success stories during the event and use the hashtag #KeystoneSepsis.
The MHA Keystone Center will also share information and resources on its social media channels on Twitter and LinkedIn during Sepsis Awareness Month that will highlight evidence-based practices to improve the identification and treatment of sepsis.
A list of confirmed participants can be found at the MHA Keystone Center Sepsis Awareness Twitter Chat event webpage. For more information on Sepsis Awareness Month and the MHA Keystone Center Twitter Chat, contact the MHA Keystone Center.
