Participate in research – Sepsis in people 75+

Share this story

This research project is a phenomenological study seeking to understand the lived experience and perception of non-clinical persons who are ‘known and familiar’ with an older adult who has been diagnosed with sepsis. Interviewing with each individual participant is expected to take an average  45-60 mins. The benefit and potential impact in doing this specific research is the following:

  1. This study could open the door to a more active role of non-clinicians,
  2. Inclusion of  the non-clinician into clinical warning tools.
  3. Potential design of a non-clinician early recognition tool for sepsis which could further be tested for diagnostic accuracy.

All of this being consistent with this contemporary movement on patient and consumer involvement.
