This Sepsis Awareness Month, the WSHA Safety & Quality team is working to ensure that all WSHA members have the resources and support needed to protect patients and save lives through the early identification and treatment of sepsis. WSHA is asking members to register a “sepsis coordinator” with the Sepsis Coordinator Network. If you don’t have an officially appointed sepsis coordinator, you can register any employee operating in a similar role, formally or informally. Organized by the Sepsis Alliance, the Sepsis Coordinator Network is a free avenue for sharing resources, guidance and experience between health care professionals fighting sepsis across the nation.
In addition, Daniel Henning, MD, MPH, a physician consultant for WSHA’s Safety & Quality team, is as a subject matter expert for our sepsis program and resource for members. Dr. Henning supports WSHA’s sepsis program through individual consultation, site visits and content development for webinars and learning collaboratives.
Dr. Henning is a physician in the Emergency Department at Harborview Medical Center and an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at the University of Washington. Dr. Henning earned his MD at the University of Pittsburgh and his MPH at the Harvard School of Public Health. Dr. Henning is an active researcher, with a focus on sepsis and the treatment of shock. If you are interested in connecting with him, please contact Sue Bergmann at SueB@wsha.org.
