Managing Deteriorating Conditions 2020

Learning from Sepsis+ & AMR

After guidance from NHS England / Improvement, the Sepsis+ conference has evolved. The scope has been widened to encompass all deteriorating conditions. A lot has been learned from the focus on sepsis over the last 12 months and NHS leaders believe it’s time to introduce the improved processes and procedures so that medical professionals will better manage and identify all deteriorating conditions, improve antibiotic stewardship and reduce mortality rates.
