A new learning package aimed at improving the rates of accurate diagnosis and treatment of sepsis in children and infants is now available.

Health Education England’s ‘Think Sepsis’ package uses a new style of training and includes interviews with parents of children who have been affected by sepsis. The resources can be used in face to face sessions or independently through e-learning, and teaching notes and a training guide are available as part of the package.

“The films follow the patient journey from diagnosis to treatment, as the parents each talk about their experience of sepsis, their child’s treatment and diagnosis of the condition and the impact that it has had on their families,” said HEE.

“Clinical experts also feature in the training to offer guidance in spotting the difficult-to-spot signs of sepsis in children and the best practice response to effectively treat this life-threatening condition.”

Around 1,000 of the 123,000 cases of sepsis each year in England are reported in children under five years.
