World Sepsis Day - September 13th

Did you know that in the developing world sepsis accounts for 60-80% of lives lost per year? Even though sepsis is the #1 preventable cause of death, it is largely unknown to the public and is poorly understood by healthcare workers in developing areas. In advance of World Sepsis Day, September 13, we are featuring some of the sepsis resources we have available, such as our latest video: Acute Care Case Study: GI Sepsis.

This year, the Global Sepsis Alliance is hosting the first ever World Sepsis Congress on September 8-9, 2016. This Congress will take place prior to World Sepsis Day (September 13th), will be free of charge and take place completely online. 70 speakers from 20 countries will give presentations on sepsis and will also be answering live questions from the audience.
