Sepsis Research FEAT in partnership with the James Lind Alliance (JLA)
Phase 2 survey

Shaping sepsis research for the future - the next stage

This March sees the exciting second phase of the project. We are taking all of the questions that we collected during the first survey and asking you to rank these questions in order of importance to you.

As a reminder, this once in a generation project for Sepsis Research FEAT is asking sepsis survivors, their carers, and health and social care professionals to help us identify the top ten unanswered questions to guide future research into sepsis. To make sure that researchers focus on the most pressing needs – of people at risk or diagnosed with sepsis, and the people who care for them.

What is sepsis?
Sepsis is the body’s life-threatening over-reaction to an infection.
When sepsis strikes the immune system overreacts and starts attacking not just the infection, but everything else around it including the body’s own tissues and organs. Any type of infection —bacterial, viral or fungal — can lead to sepsis, with potentially devastating results.

If you are helping a person with health issues to complete this survey, please make sure that the responses are their own. You can complete the survey again yourself as the carer.

Your data
Any personal information that you have provided will be anonymised and will only be used in relation to this project.
Your personal information (for example your gender or ethnic group) will be held and used in compliance with data protection regulations (GDPR).
You can complete this survey multiple times from different viewpoints if that is relevant to you. For example, you may have had sepsis yourself and also be a carer for someone who has had sepsis.

To complete the survey again follow the instructions at the end of the survey.

The survey will take approximately 12 minutes to complete. Please make sure you answer all of the questions. You cannot save the survey part way through. Leaving the browser open will keep your place if you need to complete the survey after you have started.
This survey will close on 21st June 2024.
