Resuscitation Education Science
Educational Strategies to Improve Outcomes from Cardiac Arrest examines best practices in education and applies them to resuscitation science. When implemented in training, guidance in this resource will help raise quality of care and increase survival from cardiac arrest.
The AHA believes that poor CPR quality is a preventable harm. Our focus is on improving quality of care and patient outcomes to double survival rates from cardiac arrest by 2020. That’s why we, as the leader in resuscitation science and training, led the development of this analysis and statement. This statement marks the first time that cardiac specialists have applied education best practices to resuscitation training, offering consolidated guidance to CPR instructors, educators, and others who develop relevant content. It is applicable to all resuscitation training programs with students from medical professionals to bystanders.
Our focus is on improving quality of care and patient outcomes to double survival rates from cardiac arrest by 2020.
