This is a gathering place to share our collective experience with ED sepsis care so that we may learn from each other, rather than tackling the sepsis beast in isolation in our own departments. Let's collaborate as we face the challenges of the operationalizing the CMS core measure while simultaneously balancing it against what is evidence-based and what is feasible in our current systems. By promoting communication amongst physicians and departments, we can share past successes and failures and facilitate discussion of potential new innovative strategies for improving sepsis care in the ED.
