Die Non-profit-Organisation Global Sepsis Alliance (GSA) hat sich zum Ziel gesetzt die weltweite Awareness für Sepsis zu erhöhen und gleichzeitig die Sterberate bis 2020 um 20 Prozent zu senken. Hier ein Aufruf zur Mitarbeit im Bereich Junior Faculty & Trainee Platform:

The GSA understands the importance of actively involving junior faculty and trainees, who have a keen interest in sepsis, in directly contributing to GSA’s goals and spreading its message.
The newly formed GSA Advance is a coalition of sepsis supporters around the world and includes several platforms, such as the Junior Faculty & Trainees’ Platform. Its purpose is to bring the future generation of sepsis champions to the forefront of GSA activities, broadening their scope and impact.

Membership benefits: 1) access to the vast network of GSA supporters, 2) sharing your input regarding sepsis with GSA, 3) working on GSA projects/programs, 4) posting to GSA social media sites, and 5) becoming a Representative.

Representatives can attend meetings for their chosen Committees. After completing a 1-year term, Representatives can apply to switch Committees, to remain on their Committee, or opt for general membership. Committee options are below (detailed descriptions are on the GSA website.)

• GSA Executive Board (EB)
• GSA Quality Improvement Committee (QIC)
• World Sepsis Congress Planning Committee (WSCPC)
• GSA Strategic Resourcing Committee (SRC)
• Newsletter Editorial Team (NET)
• Internal Affairs Committee (IAC)
• GSA / WSD Social Media Activities

Junior Faculty – individuals who are 5 years or less into their faculty positions. Trainees – students, residents, and fellows. All disciplines are welcome to participate (not limited to medical backgrounds). General membership is free. There is no compensation for joining. Members will be issued a certificate identifying them as GSA Advance Members.
