ASN National Awareness Survey Report July 2020

The first national sepsis awareness survey was conducted by the ASN in 2016. Results of the July 2020 ASN national sepsis awareness survey suggest awareness in the community has improved but still 40% of adults surveyed had not heard of sepsis. To reflect the current COVID-19 public health emergency a question was added to the 2020 survey and interestingly, despite the current pandemic being relatively recent, 17% of respondents acknowledged a link between COVID-19 and sepsis which is increasingly being recognised globally as the key determinant of COVID-19 related mortality. For more information on the the link between COVID-19 and sepsis see: COVID19 and sepsis.

The ASN National Sepsis Awareness Survey 2020 involved a nationally representative cohort of 1006 adults, randomly sampled from 70,000 people. The reported survey results can be accessed at: ASN National Sepsis Awareness Survey Report July 2020
