The Global Resuscitation Alliance was established in 2016 with its main mission to improve community survival rates from sudden cardiac arrest. A report, Improving Survival from Out-of-Hospital Sudden Cardiac Arrest: A Call to Establish a Global Resuscitation Alliance (GRA) was issued. The document listed 10 steps to improve community survival rates and 10 actions to achieve successful implementation. The report also included 12 case reports.
We are planning to update the report and would like to include additional case reports. We believe that the case reports are important to the document as they are instructive and motivational as well as offer an opportunity to showcase EMS systems from throughout the world. Depending on space available we will try to include as many case reports as possible.
We therefore invite you to submit one or two case reports from your community or EMS system. The case reports should have the following format and headings (or as many of the headings as appropriate):
- Name of project or program and location or community
- Brief summary
- Problem to be solved/background
- Description of project/program
- Additional plans
- Contact person’s email or URL of the project/program.
The case report must not exceed 600 words. We are imposing a word limit in order to include as many case reports as possible. Please include one or two photos/figures with captions. The editors will lightly edit the submission if necessary but will not make substantive changes without your approval.
Case reports must be received by October 31, 2017 and should be sent to Mickey Eisenberg at .
Please write us if you have any questions.
