Stopping Sepsis: A National Action Plan (PDF 4.1MB)

March 2018

On 16 November 2017, The George Institute for Global Health and the Australian Sepsis Network convened a policy roundtable with key stakeholders to address the pressing need to improve the awareness, prevention, and treatment of sepsis in Australia.

The policy roundtable took place in Sydney, Australia. Attendees included clinical, academic and policy professionals from Australia and around the world, as well as sepsis survivors and their advocates. The purpose of the roundtable was to devise a set of consensus recommendations to inform the first steps towards creating A National Action Plan for Sepsis.

This report details consensus recommendations and key discussion points made by key stakeholders on the day, and presents a coordinated national action plan to measure and reduce the personal, financial and societal burden of death and disability arising from sepsis.
