"We need to ensure Canadians are aware of how important it is to prevent sepsis and reduce the long-term disability of survivors. This includes keeping vaccinations up to date and seeking medical attention if you show early signs of sepsis,” says Dr. Alison Fox-Robichaud, Scientific Director, Sepsis Canada. “Canadians can do their part by sharing sepsis stories and educating others on what early signs of sepsis and donating blood to support those hospitalized with sepsis. Knowing what to look out for can save you or a loved one's life.”
