Intimate partner violence (IPV) affects millions of people in the U.S. each year — 1 of 4 women and 1 of 10 men have experienced sexual or physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner. Over 43 million women have experienced psychological aggression. IPV is a public health and social justice issue. Survivors can experience physical injuries, mental health issues, and are at higher risk for engaging in risky behaviors; IPV can result in death. The promotion of a healthy, respectful, nonviolent relationship is the “ticket” for awareness and prevention.
Perinatal sepsis is one of the top contributing factors in the increasing maternal mortality and morbidity rates. This webinar covers potential risk factors for developing perinatal sepsis and teaches clinicians how to recognize, respond, and manage symptoms. The knowledge taught in this webinar can positively impact nursing practice through detecting maternal risk factors early, teaching nurses how to provide rapid clinical interventions, and enhancing patient/family education.
1. Clarify definitions for intraamniotic infection (Triple I; chorioamnionitis), sepsis, septic shock, and maternal sepsis.
2. Identify key nursing assessments and protocols for early recognition and management of perinatal sepsis.
3. Identify critical elements for patient education, including warning signs.
