200922 Conference banner registration (resized)

07:00-09:00 EDT | 13:00-15:00 CET | 19:00-21:00 SGT | 22:00-00:00 AEST

On 20th October 2020, there will be an online conference hosted by international out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) registry leaders from the Pan-Asian Registry Outcomes Study (PAROS), 1 the US-based Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival, 2 the Australian Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium (AusROC) and the European Cardiac Arrest Registry (EuReCa)3. The annual meeting of these leaders was originally planned for the world-famous Utstein Abbey, Norway, 4 but having to think in an ‘online’ way due to COVID-19 has created the opportunity to share the expertise and experience of the leaders with an international audience.

The two-hour conference will include short presentations by expert speakers from the US, Sweden, The Netherlands, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand. Presentations will be followed by a Q&A discussion that will include our leaders and experts.

This conference will be of interest to prehospital and in-hospital emergency medicine personnel who work with OHCA patients and data. We also expect the conference to be of equal interest to the wider health service/research community as it will provide examples of how patient-level data can be used to inform and improve public health.

This conference will be run with the support of the SingHealth Duke-NUS Global Health Institute (SDGHI) and the Duke-NUS Prehospital & Emergency Research Centre (PERC). Join us for what will be a truly international event about the universally critical health event that is out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
