I found this resource very informative and easy to understand. In particular I have learnt that by using the Quick SOFA score in assessing my patients I can be alerted early to the possibility of them progressing towards sepsis. I would then initiate the full SOFA assessment.

The old definition of Sepsis had limitations, where the new definition helps us recognize that something needs to be done immediately because sepsis is life threatening. This resource has helped my re-iterate the new sepsis pathways that have been implemented in my workplace, in order to recognize and treat earlier.
