We are pleased to announce the launch of our new Sepsis gateway page.
Sepsis is an uncomplicated condition and can be easily treated if caught early; however it causes around 123,000 deaths in England every year. Early recognition of the signs and symptoms of sepsis is the key to stopping preventable deaths.
Our Sepsis gateway page aims to support you to become confident in recognising the early signs and symptoms of sepsis, when to escalate care and how to communicate concerns with other healthcare professionals.
The page includes a short introductory video and a quiz that you can use to identify any gaps in your knowledge. The gateway page also has core and foundation learning that comprises of six case studies in the form of e-learning programmes. Each case study covers different pharmacy settings and patients presenting with various symptoms. The case studies give you the opportunity to use your clinical judgement to make recommendations for the best course of treatment for each patient.
The Sepsis page also signposts to numerous external resources, for example NICE guidance, the Surviving Sepsis campaign bundle and the UK Sepsis Trust's clinical resources to supplement your learning.
