Lecture Summary

Sepsis is a time-critical complex condition that requires evidence-based care delivered by appropriate levels of well trained, qualified and experienced healthcare providers. Limited information exists on the organisational structures, resources, clinical standards, laboratory support, and therapeutic options available in the Asia Pacific region to treat sepsis. The Asia Pacific Sepsis Alliance (APSA) a regional network of the Global Sepsis Alliance (GSA) conducted a survey across the Asia Pacific. This presentation discusses the results which aim to inform healthcare systems, policymakers and governments to facilitate improvements in sepsis care.
