Are you aware of The Global Resuscitation Alliance?

On the 6th and 7th June 2015 at the Utstein Abbey near Stavanger, Norway, 36 Emergency Medical Services (EMS) leaders, researchers, and experts from throughout the world convened to address the challenge of how to increase community cardiac arrest survival and how to achieve implementation of best practices and worthwhile programs.

The attendees called for the establishment of a Global Resuscitation Alliance (GRA) and issued a report laying out ten programs to improve survival and ten steps to achieve successful implementation. The Global Resuscitation Alliance (formally established in 2016 at the EMS2016 Conference) expands internationally the reach and utility of the Resuscitation Academy concept developed in King County, Seattle since 2008. Such a global effort will promote best practices and offer help with implementation to countless communities.

Survival from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is tragically and unacceptably low. Furthermore, there is 15 fold disparity is survival from ventricular fibrillation cardiac arrest. High-performance communities consistently achieve survival greater than 50%. An estimated 1 million persons die every year from cardiac arrest in high-resource countries.

This call to action declares the current situation to be unacceptable. We believe: - communities can and must do better. - based upon current knowledge that with adherence to and implementation of best practices communities can increase survival from cardiac arrest by 50%. - the Global Resuscitation Alliance will help educate EMS leaders about best practices and provide tools to help improve survival in their communities.
