Published on: March 28, 2018
Project Number: ES0327-000
Product Line: Environmental Scans
Result type: Report

CADTH is undertaking an Environmental Scan to understand current practices for detecting and diagnosing sepsis in remote and rural health care settings across Canada.

The key objectives of this Environmental Scan are:

  • To describe the current guidance (i.e., policies, protocols, guidelines) for detecting and diagnosing sepsis in rural and remote health care settings in Canada.
  • To describe current practice for detecting and diagnosing sepsis in rural and remote health care settings in Canada and to explore how this compares with recommended practice.
  • To identify the diagnostic technologies and other resources available for sepsis detection, diagnosis, and management in rural and remote health care settings in Canada.

 

Projects listed as “in progress” are at various stages and points of completion. These products have different processes and timelines; therefore, the timing of posting of the final reports varies and expected completion dates may change. Find out more about Projects in Progress.

The “Projects in Progress” page on the CADTH website is updated on a seven- to eight-day cycle. Please be advised that there may be overlap between when a new report is posted online and when the section is updated. View our current Projects in Progress.
