Surviving Sepsis

Surviving Sepsis

Course Duration: One day

CPD Hours: 7 Hours

Time: 08:45-17:00

Sepsis is a major cause of mortality and morbidity and a large consumer of resources in the NHS.

This inter-professional simulation-based training course combines workshops and immersive clinical scenarios facilitated by simulation experts. It addresses the early recognition and management of sepsis with a focus on the new sepsis definitions (Sepsis -3)  utilising “The Sepsis Six” – an evidence-based intervention shown to improve the outcomes of patients with sepsis through early goal-directed therapy and the exploration of human factors in healthcare.

Delegates will have the opportunity to practise, in a safe learning environment, the skills needed to recognise, assess and care for patients with sepsis with a view to improving patient safety.


  • To provide a framework for reviewing your working environment and its effect on the patient experience and their safety in relation to Human Factors
  • To increase knowledge base of the recognition and management of sepsis
  • To understand the principles and practice of the “Sepsis 6”
