In October 2017, Governor Cuomo signed into law amendments to Public Health Law § 239 and Education Law § 6505 requiring the addition of sepsis awareness and education training to the New York State-mandated Infection Control and Barrier Precautions coursework. The new element entitled “Element VII – Sepsis Awareness and Education” is required to be included in the Health Care Provider Infection Control Training coursework beginning July 1, 2018.
As an approved New York State provider (IC179), Advantedge Education released this course update on their website. Participants who enroll on or after June 30, 3018 will see the new “Sepsis Awareness and Education” module 7 included in the course content.
For a summary of what the new law requires, visit the NY State Senate website.
