World Sepsis Day 2018

Sepsis is the leading cause of death in hospital patients worldwide. With 8 million sepsis-related deaths across the globe each year, the World Health Organization has declared sepsis a global health priority.

World Sepsis Day is an initiative of the Global Sepsis Alliance (GSA) that takes places every year on Thursday 13 September to promote sepsis awareness.

On this day, clinicians all around the world join forces to spread the word about sepsis awareness.

To help spread the word this World Sepsis Day, there’s lots of ways to get involved:

  1. Take the Twitter photo pledge:
    1. Get together – and talk about sepsis with a morning tea or education session
    2. Take a photo – with your team and pledge to increase sepsis awareness
    3. Tweet us – share your pledge photo with us using @NSWCEC, @Sepsis_Kills & #WSD18
  2. Download the great range of CEC resources and display around your workplace:
