Effective March 14 2019, the Canadian Patient Safety Institute has archived the Sepsis intervention. Though you may continue to access the Getting Started Kit online, it will no longer be updated.

In this Getting Started Kit, we have chosen to emphasize an approach to sepsis that can be used in hospital inpatient units and emergency departments. Although specifically trained providers (e.g. Critical Care/ and/or Rapid Response Teams, Emergency Department, etc.) should be consulted early on, the initial response to early sepsis is often initiated by the affected patients' treating clinical team. The information provided can also be applied to the pre-hospital setting.

This section includes:

  • Goal
  • The Case for Prevention, Early Identification and Response to Sepsis
  • Words of Caution
  • Prevention, Early Identification and Response to Sepsis
    • Table 1: Sepsis Illness
    • Prevention
    • Identification
    • Response
