Think Sepsis

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH), in partnership with the Royal College of General Practitioners, has launched an e-learning programme for healthcare professionals about sepsis. “Think Sepsis” aims to improve the diagnosis and early management of sepsis in primary care.

The e-learning includes five sessions:

  • Session 1 - Overview of Sepsis
  • Session 2 - Adult Sepsis
  • Session 3 - Childhood Sepsis
  • Session 4 - Complex Sepsis Issues and Future Development
  • Session 5 - Sepsis, Care Homes and the Frail Elderly

The e-learning programme has been developed for GPs and healthcare professionals working in primary care including nurses, health visitors, midwives, pharmacists and paramedics. “Think Sepsis” follows the recommendations of the new NICE guideline on sepsis recognition, diagnosis and early management which were launched this week.

Think Sepsis can be accessed via e-LfH.
