Local evidence suggested that Emergency Medical Service Providers (EMSPs) and Mobile Intensive Care Nurses (MICNs) are challenged with recognizing sepsis. Early recognition of sepsis in the pre-hospital setting and notification to the receiving hospital may decrease time to treatment (TTT) on arrival, which may improve patient outcomes. The project objective was to improve the recognition of suspected sepsis by EMSPs and MICNs and decrease TTT.
