Educational programs have been demonstrated to improve compliance with these care bundles and survival among patients with severe sepsis and septic shock” Khawcharoenporn and Konsantad (2016).

Abstract:

Sepsis is a common disease contributing to significant mortality. Strategies including blood cultures before antibiotic therapy, early appropriate antibiotic therapy, early goal-directed therapy, acute respiratory distress syndrome and lung protective protocols, targeted blood glucose control and use of corticosteroid have been recommended for mortality reduction in patients with sepsis [1,2].

However, compliance with these sepsis care bundles was generally poor in much of Asian countries [3]. Educational programs have been demonstrated to improve compliance with these care bundles and survival among patients with severe sepsis and septic shock [4,5].
