Sepsis Awareness eLearning course

This Sepsis Awareness Course for social care gives an overview of sepsis and the key symptoms. It also identifies high-risk individuals and describes the basic response for when sepsis is suspected. Fast response to suspected sepsis cannot be overstated, and we include information that can help you in case you suspect sepsis.

The widespread awareness of sepsis is incredibly important, in particular for those who work with high-risk individuals. Sepsis is life-threatening and the earlier the symptoms are recognised, the greater chance the individual has of survival.
