Description

This awareness-raising teaching aid has been developed to help health care professionals spot and respond to the warning signs of sepsis in children. The short film features the story of Jason (who is an actor in real life) and Clara Watkins who tragically lost their daughter Maude aged just three to undiagnosed Sepsis in 2011. The film highlights the key signs that healthcare workers should be looking out for and asks them to think: ‘could this be sepsis?’ when assessing and diagnosing patients. Aimed at clinical trainers, although useful for all healthcare staff, the film accompanies an e-learning package on sepsis produced for GPs and health professionals working across primary care including nurses, health visitors, midwives, pharmacists and paramedics. Both follow the recommendations of the new NICE guidelines on sepsis recognition, diagnosis and early management. We would like to thank our partners involved in the development of the film.
