Health Education England have launched an e-learning resource for executive, non-executive and management level staff in trusts on sepsis, incorporating antimicrobial resistance and stewardship.
The learning resource and training programme is designed specifically for boards and senior leaders. It introduces the NHS clinical priorities on these areas and explains how non-clinical leaders can help to improve how we approach sepsis and antimicrobial resistance.
123,000 cases of sepsis occur in England each year with approximately 37,000 deaths annually: this is more than breast, bowel and prostate cancers combined. Prompt recognition of sepsis and rapid intervention will help reduce the number of deaths occurring annually.
The learning materials that are available via this new resource support the early identification and management of sepsis and consists of the following five sessions:
- Session 1 – Overview of Sepsis
- Session 2 – Adult Sepsis
- Session 3 – Childhood Sepsis
- Session 4 – Complex Sepsis Issues and Future Development
- Session 5 – Sepsis, Care Homes and the Frail Elderly
