Sepsis is one of Britain’s biggest killers, claiming thousands of lives annually and leaving a quarter of those who survive suffering permanent life-changing effects (Sepsis UK). Whilst sepsis can be difficult to spot, early diagnosis and rapid treatment can improve patient outcomes.
Greater Manchester & Eastern Cheshire Patient Safety Collaborative (GMEC PSC) is hosting an event to explore how we can reduce unwarranted variation in the care of patients with a ‘Suspicion of Sepsis’, particularly in the pre-hospital care setting where the burden of sepsis originates.
‘Sepsis– A System-Wide Challenge’ is a full day event and is free to attend. Delegates from ALL parts of the health and social care system, including system leaders, commissioners, sepsis leads, health professionals, service managers, carers and members of the public are invited to attend.
We hope that the event will provide an opportunity for delegates to explore how we can work together to identify patients at ‘risk of deterioration’ within the community setting, manage those with a ‘Suspicion of Sepsis’ more effectively, and reduce variations in care across our collective footprint.
The event will explore:
- The rationale for developing a ‘standardised’ approach to identifying & managing patients with ‘Suspicion of Sepsis’ in pre-hospital care settings
- Resources/tools available to assess patient risk and identify and manage ‘Suspicion of Sepsis’ safely
- Examples of local quality improvement projects
- Opportunities for reducing unwarranted variations in care and develop local action plans to support QI initiatives
