Every year WFPICCS promotes World PICU Awareness Week to raise awareness about important themes impacting #PedsICU. Member societies and key stakeholders contribute to awareness and advocacy activities at a global and regional level. This year the theme is sepsis.
ESPNIC produced a series of podcasts involving parents, key decision-makers and healthcare professionals to discuss key sepsis prevention, resuscitation and management issues. Sepsis is a major cause of child death. In developing countries, the majority of the 7.5 million annual deaths in children under 5 years of age are considered to be secondary to sepsis, showing that sepsis is still largely neglected and the scope for advocacy and improvement is high.
