We are delighted to announce that Dr. Fox-Robichaud, President of CCCS, has been selected by the Global Sepsis Alliance to receive the 2018 Global Sepsis Award: Category Three (Individual).
Dr. Fox-Robichaud was awarded for the following achievements:
- Leading the development and the implementation of the “Sepsis Module” which is an interprofessional and simulation-based training initiative geared towards increasing the capacity of healthcare teams in Hamilton (Canada) to manage sepsis from multiple vantages.
- Guiding the development, implementation and evaluation of the Hamilton Early Warning Score (HEWS) over the past 8 years. This digital, real-time, monitoring system detects early signs of sepsis or diminishing health and alerts the patient's care team so that they can quickly intervene.
- Heading the Team Sepsis: Bench to Bedside, a strategic initiative at Hamilton Health Sciences which takes laboratory techniques and integrates them into routine clinical care.
Please join us in congratulating Dr. Fox-Robichaud on this excellent recognition of her work.
