Speaking to Patients
Speaking to patients of the risks and symptoms of sepsis is one of the most important things medical professionals can do. Unfortunately, sepsis is one of the most misunderstood conditions today, and there is plenty of misinformation available for patients to review in today's Internet age.
The Sepsis Alliance has created several handouts that doctors can use when discussing sepsis and its treatment with patients. Each handout is available for download in PDF format, and provides concrete information that patients can share with family members about the disease.
The handouts currently available include:
- What Is Sepsis? - PDF (287KB)
- Sepsis: Understanding Risk - PDF (291KB)
- Sepsis Treatment: A Glossary of Terms - PDF (291KB)
