About the BC Sepsis Network

The BC Patient Safety & Quality Council created the BC Sepsis Network in 2012 to connect physicians and nurses in emergency departments throughout the province who could champion sepsis improvement locally. The BC Sepsis Network is a highly visible member of the global sepsis community, participating in the first Annual Global Sepsis Congress and annual World Sepsis Day campaigns, and has been an early adopter of new Centre for Disease Control sepsis resources.
