We’re working to achieve that by mobilizing stakeholders to ensure that prevention and control strategies target those who are most in need.
We encourage the implementation of international sepsis guidelines to enable healthcare workers to recognize sepsis earlier, and treat it more effectively.
We’re also working to raise awareness of sepsis, as well as political support to place sepsis firmly on the development agenda and make the disease a priority for clinical improvement.
We’re working to make adequate prevention and therapy programs available to people around the world by 2020. By promoting good general hygiene practices like proper hand hygiene and clean birthing conditions, as well as improvements in sanitation and nutrition, access to clean water, and vaccination programs for specific patient populations, we aim to reduce the global incidence of sepsis by at least 20% by 2020.
If sepsis is recognized and treated within the first hour, the chance of survival is over 80%. Widespread effective early-recognition and treatment systems are critical to increasing sepsis survival rates.
We aim to increase sepsis survival rates by 10% over their 2012 levels. These figures must be monitored and documented by sepsis registries, and build upon improvements already achieved following the launch of the Surviving Sepsis Campaign and the International Pediatric Sepsis Initiative.
In accordance with international consensus guidelines, all countries must monitor the time it takes for sepsis patients to receive the most important basic interventions, like antimicrobials and intravenous fluids.
We’re working to ensure that by 2020, all member countries have dedicated resources and established standards for adequate follow-up treatment for sepsis survivors following hospitalization.
We want sepsis to be a household word by 2020, one synonymous with the need for emergency intervention.
We’re working to educate lay people everywhere to understand the early warning signs of sepsis, and to encourage families to routinely question any delays in healthcare delivery.
Adequate treatment and rehabilitation facilities with well-trained staff must be made available for both acute and long-term care of sepsis patients.
We’re also working to establish training standards for sepsis as a medical emergency to ensure that healthcare professionals act promptly and effectively.
All member countries will establish consistent sepsis registries that meet international data requirements and standards.
