The Trauma of Sepsis

Sepsis is a subject often explored in education, however, are you aware of the impact that this critical condition can have on an older person? Using a case study, apply your knowledge and experience to understand what increases older adult's risk factors for sepsis, and what we as health professionals can do to prevent it occurring in the first place.
