Monthly Sepsis Webinar
Thursday, March 23, 2023, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
Category: Education

Please join us for the next Sepsis Consortium Webinar Blood Culture Quality Metrics: Is it Really Quality over Quantity?, presented by Levi Petrey, Microbiology Supervisor at Baptist Health Corbin. Petrey will discuss blood culture metrics beyond contamination rate, what affects them, and how they can be used to understand blood culture quality. The discussion will include false negatives, true negatives, PPV, positivity, and more. Tune in to hear about  proper culture bottle filling and the importance of collecting two culture sets. Timely identification and treatment of infections and sepsis can be a matter of life and death, so we need to get this one right!

KHA hosts a series of monthly sepsis webinars on the fourth Thursday of every month. Please contact Tammy Wells to be added to the distribution list.
