Bridging Gaps in Post-Sepsis Care for Survivors

A patient’s health care journey does not end after they are treated for sepsis. Survivors deal with the effects of sepsis long after they are discharged from the hospital. Up to 50% of sepsis survivors suffer severe and lasting effects, including early death, within the following three years. Seriously ill COVID-19 survivors have sepsis and face these long-term sequelae.

Join BC Sepsis Network and UBC Action on Sepsis Research Cluster for their webinar and discover how local and international patients and care providers experience post-sepsis by attending a panel discussion: from acute care, discharge planning to transitioning to the community.
