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 this month's Physician World Shared Practice Forum Improving Outcomes in Pediatrics: Lessons Learned from Pediatric Sepsis with Dr. Thomas Shanley

The Global Sepsis Alliance hosted the 2nd World Sepsis Congress on September 5-6, 2018. The Congress was free of charge and took place entirely online. 100 speakers from 30 countries gave presentations and talks on sepsis.
