The Safe Management of Sepsis
This course aims to provide learners with information about sepsis and how professionals can safely manage the condition.
Overview – The Safe Management of Sepsis
In the UK every year there are 150,000 cases of sepsis which result in 44,000 deaths, a figure that is higher than bowel, breast and prostate cancer combined. Covering all the cases of sepsis costs the NHS £3,000,000,000 a year.
It is therefore crucial that clinical staff, GPs and professionals in community care have a thorough understanding of what sepsis is and how to spot the signs of it, so resources aren’t wasted and lives lost misdiagnosing the condition.
We’ve worked with The UK Sepsis Trust to create a course to give professionals an understanding of how to safely manage sepsis. The course explains what sepsis is, statistics around the condition and case studies that relate to a medical professional’s job.
Upon completion of this course, learners will be able to:
- Describe what sepsis is
- Identify the observations, in the context of infection, that suggests sepsis
- List the risk factors and pre-dispositions to sepsis
- Explain the importance of timely action to prevent deterioration
- Demonstrate the appropriate pathway to correct action
- Welcome and learning outcomes
- Introduction- What is sepsis
- Approaches to managing sepsis
- Case studies

What our clients say
Optimal People and Business are experts in all things HR. We worked successfully with them to produce a series of information videos to help businesses during the Corona lockdown. We are looking forward to working with them again in the near future as we grow our business.
We personally dealt with Vici at Optimal and she was a delight. She was open and honest and gave great advice and guidance. She helped us deal with what could have been a very difficult dismissal with a problematic member of staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Vici to any business for their HR.
Can’t thank Mel and the team enough. Really helped my business in a crisis. Looking forward to working with you and the team.

Mel and her team are fantastic, help me all along the way with some complex issues. Couldn't recommend more.
I've used Optimal PBS on a couple of occasions now to assist with due diligence on an acquisition i've been working on and also to provide contract and handbook production. Cannot fault the support or advice provided.
We love this company and Mel is a god send to our business, she sorted everything for us from employee contracts to helping us source the right accountant, she is at the end of the phone whenever I have any HR questions (even when on holiday) can not fault her commitment. Keep up the good work!
