Developing an educational pamphlet on post-sepsis syndrome to improve care for sepsis survivors

Sepsis survivors often face long-term effects that persist following recovery from the initial condition, including neurocognitive impairment, functional disability, psychological deficits, and increased risk of death. Many knowledge gaps still exist between evidence and clinical practice, leaving sepsis survivors without long-term support. The aim of this project is to create an educational resource that provide information on post-sepsis syndrome for patients and families across British Columbia.

The pamphlet is now available to download and share from the Health Quality BC website, as a trifold pamphlet or two-sided leaflet.

You can watch a webinar providing an overview of the pamphlet here.
