Life after sepsis: a guide for survivors, carers and bereaved families

Share this story

A new Australian resource is now available to provide information and guidance for sepsis survivors, their friends, families and carers, and bereaved families to help them navigate the often challenging post sepsis period. See: ASN Life After Sepsis (v1.1) 12102020

This guide aims to inform early hospital discharge planning, provide survivors advice for recovery, foster connections with sepsis support groups and assist bereaved families through their grief and sadness. The value of lived experiences of sepsis in providing this support, cannot be underestimated.

Thank you to the ASN Consumer Advisory and Support Group, and Ms Fiona Gray (Chair) for their guidance and contribution to the development of this resource.

This guide is a living document and as such will evolve over time to encompass advances in post sepsis recovery and support.
