Sepsis teaching, learning and assessment

Paul Huggan made this Official Information request to University of Otago

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Paul Huggan to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Paul Huggan

Dear University of Otago,

Dear Waikato Institute of Technology,

Sepsis is a life-threatening organ dysfunction due to a dysregulated immune response to infection. It is an important health issue in New Zealand, with a higher incidence in Maaori and Pacific populations, and with rates driven by underlying community morbidity.

In your undergraduate health programmes (particularly medicine, nursing and pharmacy) what formal teaching, learning and assessment activities specifically address the recognition, escalation and early management of sepsis in adults, pregnant/post-natal women and children?

Please provide all curriculum documents and formal teaching modules that specifically address sepsis. If learning about sepsis occurs within modules on individual infections or syndromes, please specify learning outcomes within these modules that address recognition and escalation of sepsis/critical illness.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Huggan
New Zealand Sepsis Trust

Kia ora Paul

I refer to your information request dated 21 May 2021 made under the Official Information Act 1982 (Act).

The Act requires that we advise you of our decision on your request no later than 20 working days after the day we received your request. Unfortunately, it will not be possible to meet that time limit. We are therefore writing to notify you, pursuant to s15A of the Act, of an extension of the time to make our decision in respect of your request, by a further 8 working days - to 30 June 2021. However, we will endeavour to respond to you sooner if possible.

This extension is necessary both (i) because your request necessitates a search through a large quantity of information and meeting the original time limit would unreasonably interfere with our operations and (ii) to allow for consultations necessary to make a decision on your request.

If you are not satisfied with our extension of time, you have the right to make a complaint to the Ombudsman under section 28(3) of the OIA. However, we would welcome the opportunity to discuss any concerns with you first.

Ngâ mihi
