“An emphasis on timely treatment and diagnosis is crucial if we are to improve outcomes for people with sepsis.” Dr Ron Daniels, chief executive of the UK Sepsis Trust
Sepsis is a serious complication of an infection. Without quick treatment, sepsis can lead to multiple organ failure and death
There are around 250,000 cases of sepsis a year in the UK and at least 46,000 people die every year as a result of the condition. However, according to the UK Sepsis Trust, more than 25% of these deaths could be prevented through earlier recognition and treatment.
Early diagnosis and effective treatment are crucial in boosting a patient’s chance of surviving sepsis. In 2018 the Royal College of Physicians released the second version of the National Early Warning Score (NEWS). NEWS has been designed to ensure NHS staff moving between health care settings use a consistent set of measures to diagnose patients and communicate about deteriorating patients in a common language. Used correctly NEWS can help to spot the signs of sepsis early and can save thousands of lives.
Returning for its third year, Salford Professional Development's annual Sepsis conference is gaining a reputation as an inspirational and empowering event offering ideas in approaching sepsis and how implementing these strategies can significantly improve patient’s outcomes. Delegate feedback from our previous Sepsis Conference includes:
“All topics very useful to implement in place of work.”
“Good info on sepsis and how it affects different people. Useful for practitioners.”
“I enjoyed it, felt that I have taken a lot away from it.”
Join us for the Sepsis Conference where industry experts will provide a comprehensive and up-to-date review of Sepsis to include: the recognition and management of sepsis, the current state of sepsis education and training, dealing with patients with mental health or disability challenges and lots more.
