Waikato District Health Board Sepsis Action Group

The Sepsis Action Group has developed and launched clinical tools and pathways for use in the acute in-hospital settings, focussing on early recognition and treatment of sepsis, and continue to develop “pre-hospital” screening tools for use in the community and mental health services. Their project research indicates NZ is lacking behind in the knowledge, awareness and standardisation of recognition of the care of patients with sepsis.

 

 

The team includes:

  • Camilla Howard
  • Paul Huggan

 Topics include:

  • Incidence and pathophysiology of sepsis
  • Assessment and treatment of sepsis in adults (15 years of age and older)
  • Assessment and treatment of sepsis in children (under 16 years of age)
  • Assessment and treatment of sepsis in the maternal woman (during pregnancy and up to six weeks postpartum)
