World Sepsis Day

 

World Sepsis Day

September 13, 2017

 

The Canadian Association of Critical Care Nurses (CACCN) is asking for your institution / organization’s support for World Sepsis Day on September 13, 2017.  World Sepsis Day is an initiative from the Global Sepsis Alliance and its founding members, the World Federation of Societies of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine (WFSICCM), the World Federation of Intensive and Critical Care Societies (WFPICCS), the World Federation of Critical Care Nurses (WFCCN), the International Sepsis Forum (ISF) and the Sepsis Alliance (SA). 

The message is simplesepsis must receive the utmost priority as a medical emergency, so that all patients can expect to receive basic interventions, including antibiotics and intravenous fluids, within the first hour.

We are not seeking a public commitment to any specific target from your institution / organization and there is no cost associated with your support.  We ask only that you register your support and assess your own improvement needs and, where necessary, allocate resources to achieve those improvements.

How to be involved!
