MEDITECH signs World Sepsis Declaration

Join MEDITECH in Signing the World Sepsis Declaration

On World Sepsis Day, join MEDITECH and thousands of other entities across the globe in signing the World Sepsis Declaration

 | 

Recognize World Sepsis Day 2019 by joining MEDITECH in signing the World Sepsis Declaration. Thousands of organizations and individuals have committed to “this common call to worldwide action.”

The World Sepsis Declaration encourages the global community to achieve key targets by next year, including increasing sepsis survival rates by 10 percent through early recognition and standardized care.

 The Global Sepsis Alliance states in a press release that sepsis “takes more lives than opioid overdoses, breast cancer, and prostate cancer combined. Yet, 76 percent of U.S. adults incorrectly believe that more people die of opioid overdoses in one year than from sepsis.”

What can you do to improve detection and treatment of sepsis? Check out our Sepsis Management Toolkit and Surveillance web pages for resources that can help.
