In 2021, Sepsis Alliance launched an educational awareness campaign to highlight the connection between antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and sepsis. A global survey was launched and revealed that only half of adults surveyed (52%) were aware of the term antimicrobial resistance. In the following years, this campaign has motivated the creation of the Sepsis Alliance AMR Conference for healthcare professionals, advocacy efforts surrounding the PASTEUR Act, and a follow-up survey of C-suite healthcare executives.

Sepsis Awareness Surveys

In 2010, Sepsis Alliance and Harris Interactive conducted a poll to get a better understanding of how many people in the United States could recognize the word “sepsis.” Results showed that the majority of Americans had never heard the word and of those who had heard it, many did not know what it meant. Repeat polls have been done each year, showing the progress that is being made.
