Sepsis is associated with high mortality and morbidity. Immediate recognition and treatment is crucial to prevent complications that can be highly detrimental and cause a significant impact on the U.S. healthcare economy. Numerous studies have been conducted to improve patient outcomes and lower healthcare costs from sepsis and septic shock. Many of these studies were focused on exploring healthcare providers’ knowledge and compliance to the Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) guidelines. This study aimed to explore and identify barriers to the implementation of the sepsis bundles and strategies to enhance healthcare providers’ adherence to these bundles. A systematic review of articles was conducted using the ACE Star Model of Knowledge Transformation. Studies such as randomized controlled trials (RTC’s), systematic reviews, retrospective studies, and prospective observational studies conducted in Intensive Care Units (ICUs) within the past 10 years were utilized, guided by the American Association of Critical Care Nurses’ (AACN’s) grading system. Sources of evidence were obtained from PubMed, CINAHL, and GoogleScholar. The results of this study are aimed at helping support the evidence-based clinical practice among providers caring for patients with sepsis and septic shock in an ICU setting using evidence-based guidelines. The results of this study provide an opportunity for healthcare systems to relieve financial burdens from sepsis and thus contribute to pos
