Sepsis Unplugged 2018
Edgbaston Stadium, Birmingham
5- 6 of February 2018
The UK Sepsis Trust is pleased to announce that Sepsis Unplugged 2018 will take place from the 5th- 6th of February at Edgbaston Stadium, Birmingham. Sepsis Unplugged is a conference done a little differently. It leaves attitudes and egos at the door, brings together all healthcare professionals and patient groups as equals, and asks the questions that will shape better sepsis care.
Conferences like this are crucial: we must act decisively to save the thousands of lives sepsis claims every year – more than breast cancer, bowel cancer, prostate cancer and HIV/AIDS combined.
Traditional academic meetings have failed to reliably improve outcomes or engage the wider healthcare system. At Sepsis Unplugged 2018, a range of practical workshops, discussion panels and interactive sessions lead the way for a truly novel, inspiring experience. High profile speakers will provide a comprehensive and up-to-date review of Sepsis to include; the patient perspective, examining patient information, management of paediatric sepsis, maternal sepsis, and lots more. The programme has been designed to appeal to a multidisciplinary audience, there really will be something for everyone. This is the forum for healthcare professionals to come together and improve sepsis outcomes.
- The Survival Lottery – A Patient’s Perspective: In this session Nina Hossain, an English journalist and newscaster, will interview sepsis survivors in order to understand sepsis from a patient perspective while highlighting the gaps in our current system and their tragic consequences.
- Patient Information for Sepsis Survivors: Ensuring those recovering from sepsis are provided with the correct information on what to expect during recovery and be aware of some of the possible complications.
- Recognition and Management of Paediatric Sepsis, Real-Life Practice and Pitfalls: Dr Emma Lim, Consultant Paediatrician Great North Children’s Hospital, will explore the difficulties of recognising sepsis in a paediatric population and the evidence for using a clinical systems approach. She will discuss current controversies.
- Maternal Sepsis: Sessions will identify women at greater risk of maternal sepsis and highlight actions to prevent and treat maternal sepsis. The conference will raise awareness about maternal sepsis and disseminate findings of the Global Maternal Sepsis Study (WHO). Recent international efforts to improve the management of maternal sepsis, including the development and use of the FAST-M maternal sepsis bundle in Malawi, will be discussed.
- Sepsis Registry: Dr Ron Daniels, BEM, CEO: UK Sepsis Trust and Global Sepsis Alliance, Clinical Adviser to WHO. This session will highlight how we now rely on interpretation of unreliable data, and even surrogates, to estimate the burden of disease and potential gains; and explore how a better understanding of sepsis and severe infection might highlight these conditions as the biggest cause of harm and premature death facing our public.
