This CPD activity consists of 5 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) designed to test your knowledge on sepsis in primary care—you will then be prompted to reflect on your learning.
The questions, written by Dr Simon Stockley relate to his expert article, Sepsis: recognising the needle in the haystack, which discusses new approaches to recognising and tackling sepsis.
On completion of this activity, you should be able to:
- explain what physiological signs are most predictive of sepsis
- discuss how the National Early Warning Score (NEWS) can be used to stratify a patient’s risk of death and presence of sepsis
- recall national guidance recommendations on sepsis
