Lecture and discussion at the Capital City Congress, 22 May 2019: “Must sepsis be fatal? Knowledge is power”

Invitation to lecture and discussion on combating sepsis at the Capital City Congress, 22 May 2019: “Must sepsis be fatal? Knowledge is power: Saving lives with Big Data and Decision Support?”

“For 80 years – despite billions of euros in funding – we have not achieved any successful innovation in medicine to bolster the fight against sepsis. The problem is neither resistance nor bad therapies in intensive care units. The problem is that we simply do not yet understand how sepsis can be stopped”, Prof. Dr. Adamzik, University Hospital Knappschaftskrankenhaus Bochum, Ruhr University Bochum.

Prof. Dr. Adamzik will present the new “SYMBARA” concept and provide the input for the following panel discussion chaired by Dr. Stefan Hörter (Institute for Health Care Research KBS) and Prof. Dr. Claus-Dieter Heidecke, MBA (University Medicine Greifswald). Participants of the panel discussion are: Heike Gebhard, MDL (SPD parliamentary group in the state parliament of North Rhine-Westphalia), Dr. Stefanie Schmitz (German Pension Insurance Knappschaft-Bahn-See), Dr. Christian Stephan (KAIROS GmbH).

Every year 140,000 patients in Germany contract sepsis. In industrial countries, the annual growth rate of this disease has been 8 – 13% for 10 years. 59,000 patients die from it – that is 162 people a day in Germany alone.

“SYMBARA – system-medicine-based personalised sepsis analysis” – a new concept to combat sepsis will be presented from 21-23 May 2019 at the Capital City Congress in Berlin in the CityCube at Stand 7. The lecture will take place on Wednesday, 22.05.2019, 09:30 am, Room M4.
