Research output: Contribution to conferencePresentation


This session will describe a three-year national collaborative to reduce patient mortality from sepsis in Scotland, which is part of a larger key effort, the Acute Adult Safety Program. Presenters will share their approach and learnings from an
evaluation of the sepsis collaborative. Through a case study from one hospital in Scotland, participants will learn effective strategies and presenters will share the practical ideas that
support their ongoing efforts to improve care delivery and reduce mortality from sepsis.

After this presentation, participants will be able to:
• Identify the challenges related to reducing mortality from sepsis
• Implement processes to make evidence-based interventions for patients with sepsis more reliable and timely
