A patient’s health care journey does not end after they are treated for sepsis. Survivors deal with the effects of sepsis long after they are discharged from the hospital. Up to 50% of sepsis survivors suffer severe and lasting effects, including early death, within the following three years. Seriously ill COVID-19 survivors have sepsis and face these long-term sequelae.

In partnership with the UBC Action on Sepsis Research Cluster, discover how local and international patients and care providers experience post-sepsis by attending a panel discussion: from acute care, discharge planning to transitioning to the community.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Compare the experiences of survivors and clinicians in post-sepsis care across various settings and demographics.
  2. Identify gaps and challenges in the sepsis patient pathway transitioning from the hospital.
