This conference focuses on ensuring early diagnosis and effective management of Sepsis with a particular focus on patients with Covid-19 and raising awareness of the risks of Sepsis in Covid-19 survivors.

“The NHS needs to enhance the mechanisms it uses to diagnose infection and recognise sepsis”

Infection Management Coalition White Paper, February 2022

“Patient safety must never be taken for granted: the next challenge is always just around the corner. Sepsis remains a major challenge to healthcare, and is one of our biggest causes of unchecked deterioration and avoidable patient harm. The statistics concerning the number of patients affected by sepsis and the numbers of lives claimed are frightening."

Professor Sir Liam Donaldson, WHO Envoy for Patient Safety from the UK 2021

“Health systems that are resilient against sepsis and severe infection outside pandemics will be resilient against future pandemics.”

Niranjan ‘Tex’ Kissoon, President Global Sepsis Alliance 2021

Results of a new study into the after-effects of Covid-19 from the University of Michigan confirm the similarities between the recovery process of sepsis survivors and those who survive severe Covid-19.

“This new study confirms what we have strongly suspected since the start of the pandemic. Covid-19 is characterised in the seriously ill by an immune overreaction to the infection causing organ damage, exactly the same mechanism as in sepsis from other causes. We have stated for many months that the after-effects of Covid-19 are likely to be extremely similar to those of other patients who’ve survived sepsis, to the extent that we opened up our support team to survivors of Covid-19 back in March. This new study validates that stance, and supports our proposal that our skills in helping people recovering from sepsis are transferable.”

Dr Ron Daniels, The UK Sepsis Trust 2021
