Educational Objectives:

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Improve patient outcomes by increasing adherence to best practices for patients with sepsis.
  • Increase knowledge of how antibiotic exposure can accelerate the acquisition of antibiotic resistance.
  • Identify cortical and sub-cortical brain structures that influence the parasympathetic control of organ function.
