150 Lives in 150 Days

From October 13, 2013 to March 11, 2014 the BC Sepsis Network saved 150 Lives in 150 Days. Read our publication here to understand how we used gamification in this initiative and learn more about the campaign and champions below.

The campaign asked participating teams to report every time a sepsis protocol was followed to treat severe sepsis or septic shock. Every 5 sepsis cases entered online saves 1 life1.
