Sepsis Unplugged 2018

Date: 5- 6 of February 2018
Edgbaston Stadium, Birmingham

CLICK HERE to find out more

The UK Sepsis Trust
is pleased to announce that Sepsis Unplugged 2018 will take place from the 5th- 6th of February at Edgbaston Stadium, Birmingham. Sepsis Unplugged is a conference done a little differently. It leaves attitudes and egos at the door, brings together all healthcare professionals and patient groups as equals, and asks the questions that will shape better sepsis care.

Conferences like this are crucial: we must act decisively to save the thousands of lives sepsis claims every year – more than breast cancer, bowel cancer, prostate cancer and HIV/AIDS combined.

Traditional academic meetings have failed to reliably improve outcomes or engage the wider healthcare system. At Sepsis Unplugged 2018, a range of practical workshops, discussion panels and interactive sessions lead the way for a truly novel, inspiring experience.  High profile speakers will provide a comprehensive and up-to-date review of Sepsis to include; the patient perspective, examining patient information, management of paediatric sepsis, maternal sepsis, and lots more. The programme has been designed to appeal to a multidisciplinary audience, there really will be something for everyone. This is the forum for healthcare professionals to come together and improve sepsis outcomes.
