World Sepsis Day: Research, Advocacy, and Clinical Care in BC and Worldwide

September 13, 2023 | 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Globally, sepsis is responsible for nearly one in every 5 deaths, and in Canada, sepsis effects 75,000 individuals per year. Sepsis occurs when an infection results in vital organ damage, and any infection can lead to sepsis. Gaining an understanding of sepsis early in your healthcare education is critical to ensuring you are delivering the best possible care for patients with sepsis.

At this event, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from health care providers and sepsis researchers working to improve outcomes for children and adults with sepsis in BC and worldwide, appreciate the gravity of sepsis through the experience of a survivor, and network with like-minded individuals who are passionate about combatting sepsis. Together, we can make a difference and save lives.
