Scottish Cardiac Arrest Symposium
There will be ‘LIVE WEB STREAMING’ on the day – visit http://www.video3uk.com/default.aspx to watch online for free
The Resuscitation Group in Edinburgh welcomes you to the Scottish Cardiac Arrest Symposium 2015, a collaboration between the University of Edinburgh, Scottish Government and Industry partners to bring together international thought leaders in the field of resuscitation after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
The question we have posed ourselves this year is
‘How do we build a system that saves lives after Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA)?’ To examine this theme we have invited speakers from around the globe who have demonstrated excellence in optimising the Chain of Survival, responding to the challenges of resuscitating OHCA and changing the systems that get in the way. Join the conversation #SCAS15
The symposium is a chance to highlight Scotland’s ongoing commitment to improving outcomes after OHCA. We will take the opportunity to learn from the best in the world and cast a vision of how we can change the communities we live in to make sure that more lives are saved.
Further aims and objectives of the day
• To announce Scotland’s plan to revolutionise the way we deal with OHCA.
• An opportunity to hear some of the best practitioners around the world describe how they have built systems of care to save lives after OHCA.
• Learn about integrating the elements of the whole chain of survival to optimise clinical outcomes.
• A chance to join the conversation about saving lives after OHCA in Scotland.
• To network with colleagues from across Scotland and elsewhere in the UK.
• To inspire and motivate further enhancements in the delivery of care to patients after OHCA.The following two tabs change content below.Paramedic, educator, researcherAlan is a critical care paramedic, paramedic educator and prehospital researcher, currently working around the world as an educator and researcher.
