Aims and objectives

This learning resource provides opportunities to:

  • Define sepsis
  • Understand the physiological effects of sepsis
  • Examine the 2016 NICE sepsis care bundle guidelines using a case study approach to:
    • Explore the clinical assessment of sepsis
    • Investigate the management and treatment of a patient who has sepsis

Whilst reasonable care has been taken to ensure the accuracy of the information presented within this resource, please do not use the specific information (e.g. normal values of blood results) provided on which to base your clinical decision making for individual patients. Always follow NICE guidelines and the local policies agreed in your own clinical area.
