    Are you a cardiac arrest survivor or the family member of a survivor? Did someone step in to save your life? Then we’d love you to join us for an online gathering, celebration and idea exchange. Since 2015, the Canadian Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium (CanROC for short), a nationwide group of researchers, physicians, paramedics and others, has been collaborating on research that is improving survival from cardiac arrest in Canada. Each year, we come together to discuss findings, share best practices and explore new ideas. And every year we have hosted an in-person event like no other, where survivors, bystanders, family members and loved ones join with paramedics, doctors and researchers to share, learn, say thanks and celebrate. 

    This year, due to the pandemic, our annual conference is going virtual. And while it is not ideal for collaborative work and catching up with colleagues from across the country, it does mean that our Survivors and Bystanders event can be bigger than ever. 

    Won’t you join us for Cardiac Arrest Conversations – Take 1 - an evening of introductions, conversations, and story sharing? There will also be some pretty fascinating updates from leading experts on the important research work that CanROC is doing to save more lives. And they will be answering your questions!

    Join us Tuesday May 4th  Cardiac Arrest Conversations – Take 1 – a free Zoom event hosted by the Canadian Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium (CanROC).
