EPIC III (a 24-hour point-prevalence study) will be performed on September 13, 2017, World Sepsis Day. Data will be collected on: demographics, infection management, degree of organ dysfunction and patient outcomes.
To make this project really worthwhile, we need to enrol as many units as possible in as many countries as possible worldwide – so please join us in this exciting project! Data collection will be limited to simple variables that are easy to collect and routinely recorded. Data will be recorded using electronic case report forms (eCRF) (paper versions can be provided if online access is problematic or not available).
This study will be observational and non-interventional, and patient data will be anonymous. Nevertheless, you will probably want to inform your ethical committee according to local requirements.
EPIC III is supported by the World Federation of Societies of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine.
