Sepsis is a major cause of mortality and morbidity within the NHS. The management of sepsis is driven by international evidence and consensus-based guidelines. Due to multiple pressures and human factors, the delivery of care to patients diagnosed with sepsis can be challenging and may not meet the targets specified by these guidelines, effecting outcome.
The ‘Sepsis 6’ is an intervention designed to improve the immediate management of septic patients by guiding staff through the initial steps in the goal-directed management of sepsis. It has been shown to improve the outcomes of patients with sepsis. Our programme is designed to increase the awareness of the Sepsis 6, to educate about sepsis and to explore scenarios in which the recognition and management of sepsis may be complicated.
