With sepsis highlighted as a global threat by the United Nations World Health Assembly in 2017 and rates of sepsis increasing in Queensland, sepsis is a major priority for Queensland Health.
Clinical Excellence Queensland is working with key stakeholders to improve early recognition of sepsis and early treatment of the potentially deadly condition. The Statewide Sepsis Steering Committee and Paediatric Sepsis Working Group have developed an adult and a paediatric sepsis clinical pathway, and the Sepsis Breakthrough Collaborative will use improvement methodology designed by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) to achieve improvement in sepsis management in Queensland.

Clinical Excellence Queensland has also developed sepsis resources, including infographics and screensavers, to help increase awareness of the condition.
