Sepsis awareness month: a reminder of the need for swift action

Cliff Evans Consultant editor, Emergency Nurse

September is sepsis awareness month and it reminds us of the importance of swift detection of the potentially life-threatening infection.

This has included audits, which identify how serious the condition is, and how important early identification and treatment are to prevent life-changing complications and fatal disease progression.
