Oxford AHSN sepsis programme
Published: 23 May, 2019
Sepsis is the number one cause of hospital mortality. It is under-recognised, under-estimated and under-treated. There are over 650,000 admissions to English NHS trusts per year with sepsis infection and around 80,000 deaths. By improving sepsis recognition, timeliness and reliability of treatment, a third of these deaths would be prevented.
Oxford AHSN has developed a sepsis programme which focuses on standardising sepsis management across the sepsis care pathway. The programme has compiled a comprehensive collection of education and training resources around sepsis as well as pathways, key documents and guidelines, patient story videos, and links to support patients and relatives.
See the Infectious diseases page for other sepsis education resources.
