Are you a sepsis survivor looking for support? 

  • Health Quality BC and Action on Sepsis have created an educational pamphlet on post-sepsis syndrome for sepsis survivors, families, and caregivers, available here.
  • The UK Sepsis Trust and Sepsis Alliance have created resources on post-sepsis syndrome. The Sepsis Alliance website includes letters on sepsis and post-sepsis syndrome that sepsis survivors can be shared with their care providers and family members.
