Sepsis is a very rare condition which can be life threatening, it is caused by an infection which causes the immune system to go into overdrive.
Think sepsis aims to improve the diagnosis and early management of sepsis in primary care. There are an estimated 150,000 cases of sepsis per year in England, and around 44,000 associated deaths. However, with early identification sepsis can be avoidable and treatable.
Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH), in partnership with the Royal College of General Practitioners, has launched an e-learning programme for healthcare professionals about sepsis. Think Sepsis follows the recommendations of the new NICE guideline on sepsis recognition, diagnosis and early management.
