Create eLearn ng’s mobile-friendly e-learning portal is helping The UK Sepsis Trust to achieve its aim of saving at least 13,500 lives every year in the UK.

The UK Sepsis Trust (UKST) is committed to changing the way the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) deals with sepsis, as well as increasing public awareness and supporting those affected by sepsis.

Georgina McNamara, the UKST’s Executive Lead Nurse for Education and one of the Trust’s founders, conducts in-house training sessions on recognising the signs and symptoms of sepsis, principally for groups of health professionals. She explained, “The problem that I and my UKST colleagues face is that an increasing number of people want you to tell them about sepsis and how to combat it effectively – but we all have full-time jobs in the health service. So, to meet this growing need, we realised that we needed to produce e-learning materials that deal with sepsis and the issues that it raises.”

Knowing that e-learning materials need a platform – or a learning management system (LMS) – to contain, distribute and manage them, as well as monitor their usage, Georgina chose the Create eLearning mobile-friendly e-learning portal that allows users to build, host, deliver and track e-learning, as well as unite all their online training and coaching. Create eLearning’s LMS can be accessed in the Cloud, offline and off-grid – and it’s SCORM compliant.

“While it’s taken us a while to produce the e-learning materials themselves, Carol-Ann Stevenson and her team at Create eLearning have always been extremely supportive and helpful,” said Georgina. “They’ve done everything we’ve asked of them – often going above and beyond the requirements of our contract.”

Currently, there is a ‘major’ e-learning programme on sepsis available for health professionals, and a series of short modules for both the public and health professionals, known as ‘Sepsis Savvy’. These Sepsis Savvy modules were launched to an audience including members of both Houses of the UK Parliament, in April 2016, at an event in Portcullis House, in London.

Many centres throughout the world have now adopted the Sepsis Six, which has been associated with decreased mortality, decreased length of stay in hospital, and fewer intensive care bed days.

Georgina revealed that the UKST plans to produce e-learning materials covering all medical aspects of sepsis – as it affects gynaecology, obstetrics, paediatrics, emergency medicine, critical care, community care, pre-hospital care, walk-in clinics, paramedics and general practitioners.

Georgina continued, “At the moment we have capacity to cater for 500 users on the Create eLearning platform – and these places are being rapidly taken up. Of course, these are very early days and, given the increasing demand for UKST’s services, especially from healthcare professionals around the country, we’ve already put in place options to grow that capacity in increments of 500 users.

“We expect the demand for our online learning materials to grow – for example, from nurses who need to revalidate, who will therefore need to update their competency in such issues as sepsis. Ultimately we’d like to see recognition of sepsis become part of mandatory training for all health professionals.

“Moreover, by making these learning materials available online – via any delivery device – it means that they can be accessed at any time of the day or night. This should help health professionals who may have time to study at any time during their shifts.”

About the UK Sepsis Trust (UKST)
Founded in 2012 by the sepsis specialist, Dr Ron Daniels, The UK Sepsis Trust seeks to save lives and improve outcomes for survivors of sepsis by instigating political change, educating healthcare professionals, raising public awareness and providing support for those affected by this devastating condition.

Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that arises when the body’s response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs. Sepsis can lead to shock, multiple organ failure and death - especially if it’s not recognised early and treated promptly. Every year in the UK there are 150,000 cases of Sepsis, resulting in some 44,000 deaths – which is more deaths than from bowel, breast and prostate cancer combined. Survivors of the condition may experience longstanding physical effects, and some suffer from psychological difficulties resulting from their prolonged illness.

The UKST works as long-term advisers to the Department of Health and to NHS England. It also collaborates on a regular basis with the medical Royal Colleges - most recently to update NHS education programmes.
