Just ask "could it be sepsis?
Sepsis is a life-threatening response to infection that kills one in five sufferers and causes lasting disability for survivors.
Sepsis Trust NZ was established in 2017 to reduce mortality from sepsis in New Zealand.
Sepsis Trust NZ aims to prevent death and reduce harm due to sepsis by :
1) making sure everyone in New Zealand has heard of sepsis
2) providing high quality training and clinical tools for healthcare providers
3) funding sepsis research
4) supporting people who have experienced sepsis
More about us
The NZ Sepsis Trust aims to save lives from sepsis and improve the lives of survivors. The Trust was formed when a team of doctors, nurses and quality improvement experts seeking to address deficiencies in sepsis care found that no national organization existed to bring sepsis into the public eye or to facilitate sepsis care and education.
In a country where rates of serious infection and diseases of poverty have been increasing for 20 years, we found this unacceptable and set out to create and advance a sepsis agenda for New Zealand.
