SEPSIS IN 2016: WE CAN TACKLE IT BETTER TOGETHER

JOINT SESSIONS WITH ISF & SCCM

What has become clear to practitioners in recent years with regards is that sepsis remains and most likely will remain to be a complex foe in the ICU for years to follow. Initiatives to diagnosis and define it quickly have bore fruit - but eradication by way of a magic treatment or protocol continues to elude us.

What has been learned however, is the incredible power of global collaboration in spreading awareness, tools and information to the public and healthcare workers who are on the first lines when it comes to early recognition and treatment. Two joint sessions: the first with ISF entitled "SEPSIS: ACHIEVEMENTS AND CHALLENGES" and the second with SCCM: "TREATING SEPSIS IN 2016" bring together an international cast of experts in the area of sepsis to update on where we are in terms of our understanding on best practice in treating our patients.
