National Sepsis Summit

The National Clinical Programme for Sepsis holds a national summit, where healthcare professionals and patients share information on Sepsis, Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock

Sepsis summit 2023

The HSE National Clinical Programme for Sepsis, as part of the National Quality and Patient Safety Directorate, are hosting the Sepsis Summit this year in Dublin Castle, on 19 September. The Global Summit will bring together an impressive array of international and national experts to discuss topics related to the theme of 'Sepsis care in a post pandemic world'.

The Summit is being delivered, with support from the Department of Health, and in collaboration with Predicate Healthcare Performance Group.

We hope that this summit will raise awareness of sepsis in all settings, and provide a learning opportunity for all who attend, leading to better management and ultimately better patient outcomes for those who develop sepsis.

Healthcare professionals will be given the opportunity to submit an abstract on topics related to sepsis for consideration for oral or poster presentation, where the best submission will receive the Global Sepsis Summit Gold Medal for Research.

We are seeking submissions for consideration for presentation at the Summit from all healthcare professionals. Original research, quality improvement projects, and case reports broadly focusing on sepsis will all be considered. If you are interested in submitting an abstract submissions, please complete abstract template provided and submit to by 30th June.

I hope that you can join us for this highly anticipated global conference. More information regarding registration and the programme of speakers will follow.
