Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium (ROC)

(Présentement, le texte de cette page est disponible seulement en anglais)


The Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium is the first large-scale effort to conduct clinical trials in sudden cardiac arrest and severe traumatic injury focusing on interventions by Emergency Medical Services teams in the field, when there is optimal potential for patient benefit. The ultimate objectives are to improve survival rates from sudden cardiac arrest and severe traumatic injury. The Consortium supports ten regional Clinical Centres and one Data and Coordinating Centre in the U.S. and Canada and is much needed infrastructure for the rapid translation of research advances into improved resuscitation outcomes.

The Canadian sites that are part of the Consortium are supported by the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada in partnership with the NIH National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, Defence Research and Development Canada, and the CIHR Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health.
