Sepsis Awareness – how students or newly qualified nurses can make a difference

From deaths door to saving lives
Guest speaker and student nurse will be speaking about her experience of sepsis, and how this near death experience inspired her the train as a nurse. Since then, Katie has trained over 160 student nurses to recognise the signs of sepsis in practice and act appropriately.
Learn how we can all do more to improve patient outcomes from sepsis and why we are all responsible for recognising the signs of infection early.
