"In the expanding group of patients with haematological, solid tumour malignancies or bone marrow transplant recipients, there is currently no standardised strategy for monitoring of infections, despite the fact that these patients have been identified as a nidus for threats from difficult-to-treat infections."
Cancer Sepsis Pathways
We have led a sepsis program for cancer patients across Western Central Melbourne Integrated Cancer Service (WCMICS) hospitals since 2012. It is currently in place as a whole-of hospital clinical pathway at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, in cancer services at St Vincent’s and Royal Melbourne and has been adapted for use at the Women’s (obstetrics) and Werribee Mercy (community) Hospitals. Contact us for more advice for implementing this program in your area.
