Sepsis is a major cause of mortality and morbidity within the NHS. The management of sepsis is driven by international evidence and consensus-based guidelines. Unfortunately, the delivery of care to patients diagnosed with sepsis often fails to meet the targets specified by these guidelines, which leads to negative consequences for both the patient and the organisation.

Outline

The ‘Sepsis 6’ is an intervention designed to improve the immediate management of septic patients by guiding staff through the initial steps in the goal-directed management of sepsis. It has been shown to improve the outcomes of patients with sepsis. Our programme is designed to increase the awareness of the Sepsis 6, to educate about sepsis and to explore scenarios in which the recognition and management of sepsis may be complicated.

Who is this course for?

  • Band 5+ Nurses
  • Junior Doctors FY1 – FY2
  • ST1-8
  • Allied Health Professionals
  • Clinical Consultants
  • HCA’s

  • “Hands on” experience using ageing suits
  • Workshops and high-fidelity simulations based on typical clinical scenarios in the residential care home setting
  • Performing a structured approach to the unwell resident
  • Exploring communication with residents, relatives and professionals

Outline:

Dementia is a condition that pervades every aspect of a patient’s life. As such it is necessary to work collaboratively across institutional and organisational divides to provide healthcare that is centred around the patient and their carers. This course is a multi-modal interprofessional simulation intervention that involves healthcare professionals from primary and secondary care learning together with patients and carers. The course will assist in enhancing standards further so that care quality is more person and carer focussed.

The course is designed to allow learners to understand and appreciate others view points. In addition to the learning that occurs between primary and secondary care, attendees will also be learning from patients and carers. This course will focus on the technical skills in the management of dementia and delirium, patient empowerment, care delivered across boundaries, Human Factors and non-technical skills and interprofessional learning.
