Sepsis is a common time- dependent medical emergency. It can affect a person of any age, from any social background and can strike irrespective of underlying good health or concurrent medical conditions.
Internationally, approaches to sepsis management care based on early recognition of sepsis with resuscitation and timely referral to critical care have reported reductions in mortality from severe sepsis/septic shock in the order of 20-30%.
This website supports the implementation of the Sepsis Management: National Clinical Guideline No. 6, which was quality assured by the National Clinical Effectiveness Committee (NCEC) and launched by the Minister for Health November 2014.
This website will be updated to reflect changes to forms and pathways as necessary.
Thank you for helping patients survive sepsis.
