In order to reinforce knowledge, attitude, and awareness of infection prevention and management across the surgical pathway in every country around the world we invite you to create a Global Alliance for Infections in Surgery national chapter as in Italy it has been done by GISIC (Italian group for the study of infections in surgery).



The Global Alliance for Infections in Surgery appreciates the great effort of the task force who derived and validated the Sepsis-3 definitions and considers the new definitions an important step forward in the evolution of our understanding of sepsis. Nevertheless, more than a year after their publication, we have a few concerns regarding the use of the Sepsis-3 definitions.
FILL IN THE PETITION TO CHANGE SEPSIS-3 DEFINITIONS. We will ask to change these definitions.
