International Sepsis Forum (ISF)

The International Sepsis Forum (ISF) is a unique collaborative effort between industry and academia. It is the first initiative to focus solely on management of patients with severe sepsis. Headed by a Council of international experts and opinion leaders, the ISF is focused exclusively on improving the management of sepsis and, in particular, septic shock by developing an international consensus on the latest understanding of key scientific and clinical issues, and disseminating emerging practice guidelines to researchers, intensivists, and other critical care professionals worldwide. ISF can be considered an educational centre since it is part of our mission to promote “educating health professionals in the optimal management of patients with sepsis and raising the profile of sepsis as a global health challenge with the public.”
