Sepsis on the Wards Manuscript Available Open Access

Surviving Sepsis Campaign supporter, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, recently funded open access with its Sepsis on the Wards grant for original research describing a multipronged approach to improve severe sepsis outcomes.

This manuscript by Schorr et al entitled, “Implementation of a multicenter performance improvement program for early detection and treatment of severe sepsis in general medical–surgical wards,” appears in the November 2016 supplement of the Journal of Hospital Medicine.

The Sepsis on the Wards project, from the Society of Critical Care Medicine and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, seeks to ensure every patient is screened for sepsis on every shift, every day so that when a patient screens positive, teams can intervene with the Surviving Sepsis Campaign bundle.
