It can be challenging for rural health prosessionals to access education and training that is relevant for practicing in a rural setting. That’s why we run a regular webinar series designed specifically for rural health professionsals. The topics are chosen based on requests we receive so if there is a topic you would like, please let us know.
World SEPSIS Day – Korrin Barrett Fri 13th September
7-9 MILLION PEOPLE DIE EVERY YEAR FROM SEPSIS,
ONE EVERY 3.5 SECONDS.
Korrin Barrett – Survivors face lifelong consequences, Korrin Barrett shares her story. Korrin Barrett was a vivacious, fit and healthy 33-year-old, but in 2012 Korrin was rushed into hospital. After mismanagement of a medical condition she was admitted to intensive care with sepsis and was given a 5% chance of survival! Nine days later, when Korrin miraculously awoke from the coma, she received the devastating news that to save her life, both her legs and hands would have to be amputated. Korrin will share her inspirational story with Dr Paul Huggan. Paul will highlight for both clinicians and the public signs to watch for.
Just ask, could this be sepsis?
