Creating a Generation of Lifesavers_Feb 2016_Programme
Date: 26 February 2016
Venue: The Royal College of Physicians, London
There is good evidence that the provision of resuscitation training in schools is associated with increased rates of bystander CPR and improved survival after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Many of you may already be involved in the delivery of training in schools and others may be interested in finding out more about existing activities in this area or developing new schemes.
The aim of this national conference, which is endorsed by the Resuscitation Council (UK) and the Arrhythmia Alliance, is to bring together all those with an interest or involvement in educational initiatives to provide training in CPR and AED awareness in schools. The intention is to share best practice, network, inspire and be inspired, and to promote a national conversation about how to emulate in the UK the improved cardiac arrest survival that has been achieved elsewhere.
The conference is targeted at healthcare professionals, educators, researchers, policy makers and others with an interest in the topic. A high level of interest is anticipated and places are limited.
