University of Colorado Health Chosen to Spearhead Sepsis Detection Program

Denver-based Medical Simulation Corp. has chosen Fort Collins-based University of Colorado Health to pilot a performance improvement initiative aimed at better identifying and treating sepsis.

The Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland, Colo., and Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins are hosting the three-year initiative that involves clinician training and applying evidence-based guidelines for early identification and treatment of sepsis.

"The goal is to help improve [clinicians'] knowledge base around what sepsis is and how to treat it," said Rebecca Kubala, a clinical quality specialist overseeing the campaign, in the news release. "Since sepsis is not easily identifiable, clinicians always need to be thinking about it in order to find it."
