This National Conference focuses on implementing the New National Quality Standard for Sepsis published in September 2017. The New Quality Standard "urges hospital staff to treat people with life-threatening sepsis within one hour". 

"Staff in any setting, from GPs to paramedics, should check people for specific signs that will show if their symptoms of sepsis are life-threatening" NICE 2017

On 11 Sept 2017, the BBC reported that "One in four NHS hospital trusts is failing to give antibiotics to half their patients with sepsis within the recommended time, new figures suggest" Continue reading here

“An emphasis on timely treatment and diagnosis is crucial if we are to improve outcomes for people with sepsis, and this quality standard could be a hugely impactful reinforcement of the recent guideline recommendation that sepsis is treated with same urgency as heart attacks.” Dr Ron Daniels BEM, Chief Executive of the UK Sepsis Trust 2017

“This quality standard highlights priorities in the continued fight to improve sepsis care. We know from recent case reviews that there are inconsistencies in how people’s symptoms are assessed in different settings. More can be done to provide rapid treatment.” Professor Gillian Leng, Deputy Chief Executive, NICE 2017

A recent study from the York Health Economics Consortium suggests that 260,000 people in the UK develop sepsis every year. The UK Sepsis Trust estimates that sepsis kills around 44,000 people per year. Through national updates and practical case studies the conference will support you to recognise, treat and improve outcomes - effectively implementing and monitoring adherence to the New National Quality Standard in your practice.

“Every death from sepsis is a tragedy, yet too often the warning signs are missed - we need to get far better at spotting sepsis across the NHS and this advice shows how vital it is for clinicians to treat life-threatening symptoms as soon as possible.” Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt 2017
