Improving awareness, early recognition and management of Sepsis - 13 July 2021 at 12:30pm (AEST)


The focus of this web conference is on improving awareness, early recognition and management of Sepsis

It is critically important that hospitals and health services have effective systems for recognising and responding to sepsis in paediatric patients

This award winning program(link is external) undertaken in partnership with clinicians and consumers has created a range of resources including  a clinical pathway which includes a sepsis screening and recognition tool, a treatment bundle and antibiotic prescribing and administration guidelines.  Also available are a range of patient information, posters and education resources
