After guidance from NHS England / Improvement, the Sepsis+ conference has evolved. This conference will focus on the deteriorating patient’s journey, starting with soft signs in the community, and encompassing all organisations involved, going forward in their treatment and rehabilitation. It is important that we improve not just communication but also ensure we are all speaking the same language. The scope has been widened to encompass all deteriorating conditions. As we emerge from a global pandemic, there is much learning to consider as we adapt to the “new normal”. NHS leaders believe it’s time to introduce the improved processes and procedures, that medical professionals need to better manage and identify, all deteriorating conditions, improve antibiotic stewardship, and reduce mortality rates.
